CHRISTMAS IN ATHENS: THE COOLEST THINGS TO DO
Take a photo on every decorated corner, buy your last-minute gifts for your loved ones, grab a hot chocolate or choose one of your favorite cafés to enjoy a cake, listening of course to the most popular Christmas songs.
Make your research and find the events you would mostly be interested in attending, there are so many options! Concerts, dancing shows, ice skating and Christmas markets are just a few of the things you could do to make these days special.
Of course, Christmas is the perfect excuse to taste traditional Greek sweets, melomakarono and kourampies, which are offered only this time of the year. Don’t even think about the calories, after all, trying the local cuisine is a trip’s very important part.
Finally, a Greek custom that remains extremely popular among the children, is singing the Christmas carols in the streets, going from house to house or to cafés and shops. If you happen to find yourself in Greece during that time of the year, you‘ll probably have the opportunity to come across it, but don’t forget to tip the children after their performance!
