Christmas celebrations of the Ephorate of Antiquities of Imathia

Our Christmas celebrations at the Museum of the Royal Tombs of Aigai, the Archaeological and the Byzantine Museum of Veria, as well as at St Patapius.

In Aigai we decorate Iresioni, following an ancient Greek custom which reminds of the contemporary Christmas tree decoration.We will decorate olive branches with woolen rags and wishes for a favorable new year.

At the Archaeological and the Byzantine Museums of Veria, we create season ornaments and we decorate the Christmas tree. At St Patapius, the church - archaeological site restaured and publicly presented through EU Structural Funds framework programmes, on Friday 18/12 at 18:00 we listen to stories of Veria.

On Tuesday 22/12, we invite you to the Christmas event of the Archaeological Museum of Veria, with the choral ECHO OF VERIA singing christmas carols from the whole world.

The activities will take place from 16 to 23 December with the participation of school groups from Veria and the rest of Imathia.
