A Greek Christmas Tradition

While people across the world are decorating their Christmas trees, many Greeks opt for the Greek tradition of decorating a small boat. Greece was always a maritime country and, in the past, the majority of men worked as fishermen or sea men. For many centuries, Greeks have been decorating small wooden boats in order to express their gratitude for the safe return of their loved ones who were travelling at sea for the rest of the year.

“The trees reach up above me toward the sky, stretching out their great limbs in an intricate pattern that reminds me of the pattern of light… the pattern shifting back and forth as I climb.”
