THE GREEK SHIP
Updated: Feb 10, 2022
The decoration of the Greek ship was gradually replaced by the decoration of the modern Christmas tree A custom that has declined in the wear and tear of time, but no one seems to have forgotten it is that of the decoration of the traditional Greek ship. According to tradition, the ship symbolizes the new direction that the birth of Christ gives to human life. It is a habit of the old times of our country, when children with love, joy and creative mind made their toys. 50 years ago, that is, until the first post-war decade, we met the boat in many Greek houses and in the hands of children who sang carols.
