Greek Christmas Recipes


Christmas is greatly celebrated in Greece however Easter remains the most important holiday.

Greek Christmas officially starts on Christmas Eve when young children walk the streets going from house to house singing a Christmas carol known as "kalanda" .

Then the youngsters are usually offered treats and money in appreciation.

 Christmas Day is the primary attraction by  grown ups and children alike.

Roasted pork was in the past the traditional meal but in the past years mainly in the cities they cook turkey stuffed with minced meat, chestnuts, rice and pine-cone seeds.On every kitchen table you will find loaves of 'christopsomo' (' Christ bread').  

In recent times these are round loaves of bread decorated with the cross.

Christmas trees weren't very popular in earlier times, but the last half of the century just about every house decorates a Christmas tree.
