Christmas on Paros

Christmas is a time for families. Many members of the Parian international community left the island to spend the holidays with their loved ones; others brought their families here!

And there were plenty of events on the holiday calendar to enjoy; the annual Archilochos Bazaar, concerts, exhibitions, and festive decorations put up by the local communities and the Dimos – seemingly more elaborate every year. Anoussakis Market in Drios was fully stocked with mincemeat, brandy butter, cranberry jelly and all the Christmas trimmings. And the IWOP (International Women’s Organization of Paros) annual carol singing was held just before Christmas on Sunday, 23rd December at Phil and Vicki’s home in Glyfades.

This was a truly international evening, as always, with the participation of members of our community reading excerpts from the Christmas story in Greek, English, German, French and Dutch and singing along to well-known Christmas carols and songs. Vicki and Kellie Preston also performed a duet of “Silent Night” accompanied by guitar.

Thanks to everyone who helped make the evening such a success, especially in providing the delicious array of dishes for the buffet supper. Thanks too to Marilyn Rooks and Michelle Schoenfeld for the photographs.
