My Answers

1. My favorite thing about Christmas is and was the family gathering at the table.  Living  in another country, makes it a bit more difficult to get everyone together now a days. 

2. Going into NYC, christmas shopping, ice skating at Rockerfeller Center, going to a lovely Christmas show at Radio City Music Hall, and then heading over to a nice restaurant with mom and dad for lunch.

3. During Christmas time in Greece, children go from house to house and sing the Kalanda or other wise known as Christmas Carols and wishing everyone good wishes.  Also, back in the day Christmas trees didn’t exist to decorate, so they would decorate fishing boats for Christmas with lovely warm white  or colorful lights.  In some parts of Greece they still decorate boats.  

4. Good Health, Smiles, Fun, for everyone and Peace.  Life is just to short for everything that is going on, on this planet.

5.  Christmas dish favorite is Turkey and Gravy Yummmmyyyy

6. My favorite Christmas decoration is an Angel I have on my tree.

7. My favorite Christmas song is “Driving home for Christmas” !!!

8. In the Netherlands
