Festive fun for Greek euro-children

Once again the City of Athens turned on entertainment for young and old alike in Syntagma Square this Christmas.

As the weather is fine, the City of Athens has set up a free snow slide in the National Gardens to make up for the snow that didn’t fall and the snowmen that weren’t built this year. In Syntagma Square, the antique carousel with its horses whirling round and the music playing pleases both young and old. And there are the little stores of Sugar Town with all sorts of sweets, except that those have to be paid for, as do photographs with the decorated tree taken by Santas wielding cameras. The balloons, the sweets and a spin on the carousel cost euros, but a look in the decorated windows is still free.
