The Christmas season in Greece spans twelve days, beginning on December 25th, Christmas, and ending on January 6th, Epiphany. One Greek Christmas tradition is the singing of kalandas or kalantas, Christmas carols. Children go door-to-door singing their songs and playing their instruments, which include triangles, drums, lyres, and guitars. If they sing well, they’re rewarded with change and small snacks like nuts, candy, pastries, dried fruit, and other sweets. worldholidaytraditions.com
