In Greece we decorate Christmas tree as well as a traditional ship, especially in the islands they still decorate ship instead of tree!!

On Christmas Eve we make Chistopsomo(Christ Bread). It is a bread with a cross in the middle made with walnuts that we eat at Christmas lunch after we get back from the church. This day church function starts at 5 in the morning!

We also make sweets like melomakarona(it’s a kind of biscuit with honey) kourampiedes(a kind of biscuit with almonds)and sweets with honey syrop like mpaklavas, kantaifi etc.
At Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve and Twelfth Day’s Eve children sing the Carols and
we give them sweets and money!!!They hold triangles!!
