Athens Christmas lights
Following from an earlier post showing you what festive London looks like, I thought I'd give you a glimpse of Athens, Greece, during the holiday season.
Fist off, a couple of alternative takes on the good old Christmas tree:
This crib is nothing special, but I like this photo because you can just about see the little boy looking at it quite intently.
The Christmas tree on Syntagma Square, in the city centre. You can see the parliament building in the background. I didn't spot any Christmas boats around there.
A lady chestnut seller. I luuuuurve roasted chestnuts!
This is koulouri, a popular street snack. It's a circular bread with sesame seeds, it's sold by street vendors and is yummy!
Of all the snowmen and Santas I saw, this was my favourite. Doesn't he look like he's about to go "ho ho ho Merry Christmas"?
Well, maybe not ho ho ho. Perhaps he's only saying "Have a Happy New Year, folks"!
