Christmas is a great time to visit Thessaloniki. Although there aren't so magical as in Germany or Austria, you will often see the town full of snow. The town is very beautifully decorated. There is of course a large Christmas Tree, but also a very beautiful ship [Christmas Trees are supposed to be a foreign tradition that came from the West, the Greeks used to decorate ships during the season]. There is also a nativity scene, where all the Thessalonians have been photographed as children. And of course if you are there during Christmas holidays, don't forget to buy a Vasilipota-tsoureki from Terkenlis. There are several shops in Thessaloniki, and one in the airport. Just let your nose guide you!
My last visit to Thessaloniki was three days before 2003...
I was there just for a day, but I obviously I had time to meet with Panos.
X-mas lights and decorations everywhere!!!
It was absolutely beautiful as you can see!!!
or is it just me that I think so? (I had a good reason to smile all day...)
