It is not easy learning to live in a different country. I am sharing my experiences and hope someone will find it useful whether living here in Greece or any other country.

Christmas in Greece

No snowballs to throw, snowman to make or sled to slide down a hill. Christmas dinner is another thing. All the trimming, some different than the USA. Main dish was pork and chicken. Turkey is available, but with so many meat choices the turkey survived this Christmas. Potatoes were whole and not mashed, and makes no difference to me, they are good either way. Green leafy salad was a highlight, prepared by a special young lady. No left overs for this, everyone enjoyed it. Only difference was no pumpkin pie and whip cream. Was a very good meal and plenty left over. So whatever country you are from or visit I think you will not see much difference in holiday meals. Christmas in being with family and love one's, helping others out, not just opening presents.
