Istanbul Greeks Christmas 2021

With masks, red hats, Santa Claus, triangles and the director of the Painting Gallery Giannis Dermitzoglou on the accordion, Greek students in Istanbul wished a “Merry Christmas” and distributed gifts.

The carols are now something like a tradition for the Greek community of Istanbul, Pontos News reported.

Yesterday, they started from their school and reached the Greek Consulate, then made stops at the Zappeion Girl’s School and the Holy Trinity Church in Taksim Square.

They also went to the Greek nursing home of Valouklis and then made a last stop at Fanari, but failed to meet the Ecumenical Patriarch as he was diagnosed with COVID-19.
