Christmas Holiday (athens / delphi / thessaloniki / crete) Book
When thinking about Winter Holidays in Greece, we are referring to the period between Christmas and Epiphany (January 6). The Christmas Holidays in Greece begins on December 6th, which is Saint Nicolas day, and ends on January 6th, the day of Epiphany. The patron saint of the holiday is Saint Nicolas, who is also the protector of sailors, for this reason, you will often see boats decorated with many sparkling lights, among with the traditional Christmas trees.

The Greek Christmas traditions are now a mixture of modern Western customs and older Eastern traditions as Greece is the only Orthodox Country in Europe that celebrates Christmas officially on December 25th. The largest Christmas tree in Europe is lit in Syntagma Square, the location of the capital's Christmas village, while you have the opportunity to attend a wide variety of events and festivities in major cities, such as Athens, Thessaloniki, Patra and Heraklion as the municipal authorities organize music concerts, theatrical performance, and a number of other cultural events. In Greek Christmas, the feast itself becomes the main attraction by both adults and children alike.
