Christmas in Thessaloniki

Posted by Picasa
After Vespers on Saturday, we met our friend Brendan and went over to Aristotle Square to see the Christmas display.

I took the top photo from the top of the square, at Egnatia, pointing down to the Christmas tree, which is close to the gulf.

The second photo is, well, me, posing awkwardly at the Christmas tree.

The bottom photo is a decorated boat, next to the Christmas tree. Before the Western 'Santa Claus and Christmas trees' influence came in, Greeks traditionally decorated their boats for Christmas.
