Brightening up the second covid-19 lockdown in Greece, a huge Santa Claus has appeared in Katrakis Square, Glyfada (Athens).
“We did something else that we hope will bring a lot of smiles to everyone. Especially to our children. The biggest Santa Claus who has ever entered Glyfada, ten meters high, is in our city from today, at the corner of Lazaraki and Metaxa. This year, he supports not only an image and paper, but of course his mask , which he will not leave at all,” the Mayor of Glyfada, George Papanikolaou said.

He also said that the Municipality decided to decorate Glyfada with Christmas decorations earlier to bring hope and optimism.
A man in Patras decorated his motorbike with Christmas trees, a snowman, presents, and teddy bears. to spread a little hope and cheer amid the lockdown.
The idea is that his Christmas motorcycle will lift spirits during these dark times. And it doubles as a lockdown social distancing activity: people can admire it from the safety of their own homes.
