Overview of festivals and celebrations in Greece
Greece is a fairly religious country. Although many modern Greeks have moved away from strict Orthodox rites, religious holidays are celebrated in accordance with all the rules. Along with Catholic Europe, Greeks celebrate Christmas according to the Julian calendar, on December 25. On New Year's Eve, locals go to streets to sing carols. The Christmas bread called Vasilopita is baked. The dough hides a coin, and the one who will find it, will succeed in business all next year. On January, 1, the country celebrates the day of St. Basil or Agios Vasilias, who is considered the patron of good and helper to the poor. The most important religious holiday in the country is Easter. There are colorful processions throughout the country.
