Poros is joining in on new festive customs.
This year we had our first Santa Run along the waterfront.
Runners, including some of our family of course, took part. Hats were free. They ran, walked or pushed baby buggies half a kilometre along the waterfront and then half a kilometre back again. I could do that! And I just might, next year, with a family 'support team'.

Everyone who ran got a medal and a Xmas spice cake. Right on!!
This took place on 30th December. You have to remember, Santa here is Saint Basil who appears on New Year's Eve, not Saint Nick who slides down chimneys on Christmas Eve.

Red and white hats seem to have taken over the world - even places where Saint Nic never set foot or some incarnation of Green Man used to distribute the seasonal gifts. Go you - start training, 1 km doesn't sound unachievable.ReplyDelete
I walk 3 kms a day so one is nothing. Hopefully in a years time I will have doubled the distance. It's great weather for walkingDelete
We want to see the photos of you taking part next year.ReplyDelete
Oh don't worry, there will be photos!! And I suppose one or two of me.Delete
Looks like lots of fun and yes you could do that.ReplyDelete
Start training now
It's a stroll really. I hope they don't make it a marathon next year 😂Delete
Look forward to next year's photos.ReplyDelete
I'll be there with my camera!Delete
To answer your questions about the egg situation here, the supermarkets are still selling eggs but not cage eggs as those are now banned, you can still buy free range (which I think is much more humane) but the market is struggling to keep up with demand so when the egg orders come in, they go quite quickly.ReplyDelete
Ahaa, that's understandable! ThanksDelete
We had one here just before Christmas. I didn't watch but I was walking the dog when lots of panting Santas walked through the churchyard on their way home.ReplyDelete
I've seen them in Athens, years ago. They seem to have really caught on here. Great this year while the weather is so earmDelete
It seems that you are constantly adding more and more opportunities to celebrate on the island, how wonderful.ReplyDelete
Oh yes it the Mayor is finding all sorts of activities. There are elections this yearDelete
It looks like a fun time was had by all.ReplyDelete
A real fun runDelete
That looks like a lot of fun :)ReplyDelete
