Ship decorating or else ''Karavaki'' calling, traditions in Greece for 7Dots Studio.





Good evening sweet friends around the world!!
This Christmas season i'm sharing with you, a lay out about ''Traditions'' in Greece for the December challenge in 7DOTS STUDIO



The Christmas Boat (Karavaki- Little ship) is part of a very old Greek tradition. It comes from the Islands where each year children go door to door singing ‘kalanda’ (Christmas Carols) usually accompanied by instruments such as triangles, guitars, accordians and harmonicas. The children on the islands carry small wooden boats, either illuminated to light the way or with enough space to store treats given to them by the residents they sing for. Some claim that this custom’s roots are linked with the December 6th Celebration of Agios Nikolas (Saint Nicholas) who is the Patron Saint of Sailors in Greece.

And  is what i mean...here
