01 Dec 2019 CHRISTMAS IN SANTORINI
The merriest month of the year is already here!
Belonging to the largest festivals of the Orthodox Christian Church along with Easter, Christmas marks the birth of Christ. On this day, the Orthodox celebrate the incarnation of the Divine Word, the occupation of the Son of God in the world, as the second component of the Holy Trinity. God comes from heaven to son to lift man from earth to heaven. The inhabitants of the Cyclades celebrate 12 days, starting from Christmas Day until January 6, which is the Orthodox feast of the Epiphany.
Santorini is different at Christmas time
Christmas is usually a time for shopping, dining out and drinking with friends, traffic congestion in the cities and a lot of noise. In Santorini things are a little different at Christmas time. They celebrate much more quietly, with an emphasis on local traditional cuisine. The traditional Santorini fava will take the lead. The beans as well as the tomatoes from the traditional Santorini tomatoes are served with the famous, delicious Vinsanto wine of the island.
