Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!!!

Dear friends, the Christmas Boat (Karavaki- Little ship) is part of a very old Greek tradition. It comes from the Islands where each year children go door to door singing ‘kalanda’ (Christmas Carols) usually accompanied by instruments such as triangles, guitars, accordians and harmonicas. The children on the islands carry small wooden boats, either illuminated to light the way or with enough space to store treats given to them by the residents they sing for. We sing for you: Καλά Χριστούγεννα και Ευτυχισμένο το Χρόνος …Frohe Weihnachten und ein gutes Neues Jahr …Merry Christmas and a happy New Year …Joyeux Noël et une Bonne Année …!!!!!!!!
