Ready, steady, glow! Christmas in Athens is on and the City has announced its festive programme, packed with free events taking place all across Athens. From December 1st until January 7th (when the festive season officially ends in our parts), Athens will wear its most Yuletide colours, offering 38 days of non-stop festive fun for all types and ages. With free music concerts in both central locations and off-the-beaten track paths, children's activities and street parties, as well as the decked out schedule of the Kypseli Municipal Market, and a Christmas village in every neighbourhood, you'll always be two steps away from Christmas wherever you go in Athens this December.
On Christmas Eve, Athens whispers its wishes into the sky. Join Athenians in this recent tradition of ours at Kotzia Square, right in front of the Town Hall, where we light traditional paper lanterns, symbols of luck and happiness, and set them off into the night. Savour this brief moment of collective hopefulness and positivity then make sure to stay for the after party that follows.
