Ever wondered how New Year is celebrated in Greece?
In Greece, the period over Christmas, New Year and the epiphany is one of the most anticipated on the calendar and the occasion is celebrated with traditional customs that have stood the test of time throughout the years. So, if you find yourself in the beautiful country in late December or early January, trust us when we say that you’re truly in for a treat.
Many Greek traditions over the New Year are in place to encourage good luck, ranging from playing a low-betting game of cards in a bustling taverna to hanging onions above the door as a symbol of growth and rebirth. Or, if you’re spending the festive season in Athens, you simply must admire the fireworks that cascade over the Acropolis while you toast with a glass of champagne – it’s a moment you’ll never forget.
As if Christmas and New Year’s Eve wasn’t filled with enough joy, the festivities continue with the Greek Epiphany on January 6th and the Great Blessing of the Waters. These ceremonies are held on beaches, lakes and rivers and a cross is thrown into the water by a Greek Orthodox priest, followed by boys and men competing to retrieve it so they can have good luck throughout the year.

Greece’s Coronavirus Action ‘A Success’ – TIME report:
The key to Greece’s success, analysts say, was the government’s early steps to contain the virus ahead of most of Europe. In late February, before a single death from the disease had been recorded, carnivals were cancelled. Schools, cafes, universities and most other businesses were ordered closed on March 5, when there were just 31 confirmed cases in the country. You are in safe hands here.
