  • [01] Holiday events in nat'l gardens

    The National Gardens, adjacent to the Parliament building in downtown Athens, inaugurated its Christmas and New Year's attractions and series of events on Saturday, all centred on the theme of "Greek and international fairytales come alive".

    At the main gates, "elves" hand young visitors a map and "passport" to discover the gardens' secrets in the "Forest of Fairytales". The elves will inform youngsters that they should visit all sites. After completing their tour of the gardens and receiving all stamps, children will be given a "storyteller's stamp". The map of stamps will serve as a memento of their participation in city of Athens' Christmas events.

    Specific fairytale themes include the "The Cookie House and the Cookie Men"; "The House of Santa Claus", "Let's tell a Story", "The Wish Workshop", "The Snowman and the Girl", "The House of the Storyteller", "Be part of a Fairytale"; "The Little Drummer Boy's Hut", and "The Elves of the Mill".
