A Holiday Getaway to the Village of Vamvakou, No Travel Required
08 December 2020

The holiday season may be different this year, but that’s no reason not to celebrate it—especially when you can do so without changing out of your slippers. Vamvakou Revival brought the festive atmosphere of the cozy Greek mountain village of Vamvakou to everyone!

On Tuesday, December 8, we were transported to Mount Parnon to watch as the Christmas tree in Vamvakou’s square was illuminated and the little village’s big decorations were unveiled. To the holiday traditions that bring us together—singing carols, exchanging gifts, sharing moments of nostalgia—add joining the live countdown to the lighting of Vamvakou’s tree, a new tradition for our new normal.

The events were organized by the Vamvakou Revival team with support from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
