Christmas 2008 in Athens: Kanari Square in Kypseli

For the first time, the city will transform Kanari Square in Kypseli into a holiday wonderland! This year,¬†with the square awash in lights, the 60 seat colorful carousel (previously in Syntagma Square) has a new home, which lets this ex-pat Chicagoan go round and round and up and down, surrounded by holiday cheer reminiscent of a wintery afternoon on Chicago’s Navy Pier, but without the brisk winter air I’d be forced to brave at Navy Pier in Chicago – an added bonus of Christmas in Athens I suppose!

The Kypseli kickoff will be Tuesday, December 16, 2008 at noon, with a concert by the Athens Philharmonic Orchestra.  Additional performances include:
