Christmas in Greece

    Here in Greece people decorate coloured lights, boats and Christmas trees. We decorate boats because boats remind us of the summer, the coloured lights remind us of life.
    During of Christmas people in Greece eat and drink too much. For example we eat turkey stuffed with chestnuts, coconuts, minced meat, onions, peppers and parsley and usually drink red wine.
    On Christmas day families and friends give each other presents which they put in the stockings which are out of the door.
    On 1st January there is a big Festival whose name's new year's day. On 1st January in Greece we cut the new year's cake and we throw a pomegranate on the floor for good luck.
