    ωραίος= που προκαλεί ένα συναίσθημα ευαρέσκειας, ευχαρίστησης, ικανοποίησης κτλ. (from here, it's δ)
    therefore
    τα ωραία= όσα προκαλούν συναίσθημα ευαρέσκειας, ευχαρίστησης, ικανοποίησης κτλ.
    I never thought I'd need to use a dictionary for that, but that's Lexi for you.
    Here's another occasion where the same word is used in the same way: έλα να νιώσεις πώς είν'η ζωή, κι όλα τα ωραία μέχρι το πρωί.

    whereas here they talk about τα όμορφα (same difference)

    Thanks, SBE. I have already looked up the references you here suggested but still hummed and hawed about the best way to render these terms into English. That's why I translated τα ωραία as "the good things in our life". Can you suggest a better and more accurate rendering?

    Τhe good things in life are things like family etc. The "good things" they talk about here are the things you do to have fun.

    Not necessarily

    Plus, as we already know, the best things in life are free ...
