Athens inaugurated its holiday season by holding a concert and lighting up a large boat made of twinkling lights in the capital’s Central Syntagma Square.

Athens Mayor, George Kaminis, gave the signal to light the boat, expressing his own christmas wish for all the city’s residents to celebrate as one.
