Christmas In the Heart of the City – Χριστούγεννα στην Καρδιά της Πόλης

Sharing is caring!

Last week I took a trip with my family into the heart of the city. And today I will share with you Christmas in the heart of the city.  Ιt was decked out in all of it’s Christmas splendor. There was much to see as we walked through the streets.  Uncommon Christmas trees with bows.

Την περασμένη εβδομάδα πήγα βόλτα με την οικογένειά μου στην καρδιά της πόλης.  Ήταν στολισμένη με το μεγαλείο των Χριστουγέννων. Είχε πολλά να δούμε στους δρόμους. Ασυνήθιστα Χριστουγεννιάτικα δέντρα με φιόγκους.

Even the olive trees were all dressed up!

Ακόμη και τα ελαιόδεντρα φορούσαν τα καλά τους!
While traditional Christmas trees were left bare on the balconies.

Ενώ παραδοσιακά Χριστουγεννιάτικα δέντρα έμειναν γυμνά στα μπαλκόνια.

And as befitting Greek tradition, a boat all lit up and ready to sail.

Και όπως ταιριάζει στην ελληνική παράδοση, ένα σκάφος φωτισμένο και έτοιμο να ταξιδέψει.

And lest we forget… “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night”.

Και να μην ξεχνάμε … “Καλά Χριστούγεννα σε όλους και σε όλες μια καληνύχτα”.

What lovely decorations you have around your city. I love the decoration on that bike. They've made a real effort with that one. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Sally @ Life Loving #LifeLovingLinkie

My favorite was the bike as well. It was such a surprise to see it on the top of the side of the building. Hope you also had a wonderful Christmas and New Years!

Hi Mary how lovely it looks where you live! I just adore the Christmas decorations that each City has. We have travelled during December to Europe and East Coast USA and I love looking at the beautiful Christmas lights on display in the shop windows and main centres. Thank you for sharing your city's display. I wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas and peaceful and happy New Year. Thanks for linking up at OvertheMoon and see you in the New Year.

Thank you Sue. I too love this time of year and have many fond memories of life in New York and all the amazing displays there. Of course, here it's on a much smaller scale but it is still something that brightens the spirit. Merry Christmas and stay cool!

Good Morning Mary, I love that you just took me on a wonderful trip to a faraway city so that I might enjoy its sights and sounds. Is that Athens? Beautiful and festive. How funny to see a Route 66 signs in a Christmas window is Greece! And the bike! Love it! And the skirt made from Christmas boughs! So beautiful and clever. Meeting you through our blogs has been one of the highlights of my year and I wish you and yours a joy-filled Christmas and peaceful, prosperous and healthy 2016. I'll 'see you' in the new year! Kisses, Lynn

Hello Lynn, It is not Athens but a much smaller city in western Greece. Did you know that half of the population of Greece lives in Athens? It is so crowded there with lots of pollution. I would not live there if you paid me. We have managed to become very westernized here, so it is no surprise that we see the sign. Also everyone learns English as a second language. In the 20 years that I've been here we went from being Greece to a colonly of the western world. Much change and we seem to have lost a lot of the flavor of the culture. Now if that is good or bad, well that is a whole other discussion. I too am very happy to have met you. By reaching out we can all learn so much from each other. Merry Christmas my twin friend. And a happy and bright 2016!

Yes Katrin, this is a bigger city about an hour away from where I live. I also love the bike and was so surprised to see it hanging on the column out in the street. At least we don't lack imagination. I hope you will bring back pictures from Germany. It will be magical there. I've seen pictures of the castles in the mountains. Breathtaking!! Happy Holidays to you and your family with lots of love!!

Thank you so much Krista. I'm actually looking forward to some rest and relaxation and then we have olive picking on the schedule. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a bright 2016!
