Athens Mayor Lights Christmas Tree at Syntagma Square

Athens Mayor, Thodoros Behrakis on Thursday night lit the large Christmas tree at Syntagma Square, thus signaling the start of festive events by Athens’ Municipality.

The festive scene is accompanied by the established carrousel and the “Sugar City” which offers candy to all.

This year Santa Claus invites all the children to his “Work-shop”, a small unique house, and receives the children. In the rooms of the house, the children see his helpers, the small elves, making toys. The 80-seat carrousel is comprised of small horses and carts.
