Merry Christmas to everyone! I hope that you will have the chance to spend the holidays with your loved ones!
I would like to share a Greek folklore legend with you so that you can prepare yourselves for a few strange surprises.
According to tradition, Christmas Eve is when these exciting, scary creatures appear on the surface of our world! In Greek we call them kalikanzari and they spend all year round trying to cut down ‘the tree of the World’ and bring havoc! They will be with us until the Epiphany. They are really naughty and resemble to demons with hairy bodies, red eyes and goats hooves. Only fire, sweet offerings and bells keep them away. So be aware and leave something sweet around the house just to be on the safe side!
All my wishes for your holidays!
