Christmas in Greece 🇬🇷
Today, the stage is Tijana’s our colleague from Stuttgart. Tijana is from Greece and shared her holiday customs and traditions with us!
Christmas in Greece is very similar to other European countries, some places have Christmas markets and people are generally in a jolly mood. It’s a season of helping others and putting problems aside as much as possible.
On Christmas’ Eve, children go door to door to houses/shops and sing carols (usually they receive money or little treats for doing so from each house/shop they go to). There is a late dinner on Christmas’ Eve with the whole family (parents, children, grandparents, sometimes also aunts, uncles, cousins). A lot of people go to church on both Christmas’ Eve and Christmas morning. The kids don’t get their gifts on Christmas (even though this is changing nowadays), but on January 1st, because the Greek version of Santa Claus (Ayios Vasilis = St. Vasilis) brings them after New Year’s Eve.
Which date is for you a holiday to exchange gifts? 🎁
The competition will take place daily from 01.12.2022 to 24.12.2022 on the Wolt Kurier blog (https://www.wolt.team/blog). You can comment daily under the current blog post to participate in the sweepstakes. Details about the competition can be found here. The competition is open to anyone over the age of 18 who lives in Germany. Excluded are persons who have not completed a delivery as Wolt courier in the last three months. The Advent raffle and the winnings granted therefrom represent a voluntary benefit of the employer. A corresponding claim does not arise for the future from the implementation of the raffle. We reserve the right to decide each year whether to hold an Advent raffle and which prizes to offer. This also applies if we hold the raffle repeatedly.
