Greece expressionist work of art

Celebrating Christmas and New Year’s Eve in Greece is like finding yourself in an expressionist work of art: decorated Christmas trees, shiny bright ornaments, and “karavákia” (small Christmas ships) decked with blue and white lights illuminate our streets in honour of St. Nicholas; harmonious bells and children’s carols echo through our cities and villages. Traditional culinary delights symbolise good luck in the New Year and adorn our white-clothed tables.

In this mosaic of Christmas sensations, holiday experiences are rendered even more colourful by the deep blue of our seas, the green forest of our mountains, the red coral of our sunsets, and the rich violet of our night sky.
