Emis Forame To Himona Anixiatika (Greek script Εμείς φοράμε το χειμώνα ανοιξιάτικα, English: We Wear Spring Clothes In Winter Time) was the Greek entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1996, performed in Greek by Mariana Efstratiou. Efstratiou had previously represented Greece in the 1989 contest in Lausanne with "To Diko Sou Asteri" and composer Kostas Bigalis in turn in Dublin in 1994 with "To Trehandiri".

The song was performed tenth on the night (following Switzerland's Kathy Leander with "Mon coeur l'aime" and preceding Estonia's Maarja-Liis Ilus & Ivo Linna with "Kaelakee hääl").

At the close of voting, it had received 36 points, placing 14th in a field of 23.

The song is written in 7/8 time, 'kalamatiano', a traditional Greek rhythm, with Efstratiou singing about the things that she and her lover do together.

It was succeeded as Greek representative at the 1997 Contest by Marianna Zorba with "Horepse".
