CHRISTMAS, NEW YEAR, THE YEAR'S FIRST CELEBRATION

T.C.H.
The unique event of Divine Incarnation comes alive with glory and reverence through the wonderful hymns referring to the Twelve Days of Christmas. Unparalleled lyrics with wonderful symbolism, deeply evocative and full of concepts of unfathomable religious depth, compose the greatness of this unprecedented creation. Traditions and beliefs from various parts of Greece breath life and body into a combination of religious and folk traditions, whose roots reach back to Byzantium and antiquity. The past is connected to the present, highlighting the continuity of Hellenic spirit throughout the centuries.
