Say hello to 2010 in Athens!
On December 31st, many Greeks drop in the town’s centre, for last minute shopping (because it is the custom to exchange gifts on the New Year instead of Christmas) or just a pleasant stroll.
On the main roads, teenagers and other young ones create a maniacal scene by declaring a bloodless war on each other, using plastic clubs, giant plastic hammers, foam spray and whistles as “weapons.”
Later, all the friends, or families gather at one of their houses to ring in the New Year together.
The fireworks will go off at midnight at Syntagma Square, Kotzia Square, and Klafthmonos Square, with additional fireworks launched from Lycabettus Hill.
The bars and clubs will be very crowded as normal and the streets will be full of people so the cars move at a snail’s pace.
And at 3.00 am… Our PARTY in AthenStyle starts!!
Have fun dancing and meeting people. We will have drinks and cocktails with good prices. Also, we will have free breakfast for everybody!
