The good thing about having the world end on 21 december is that at least we get to miss out on all the commercial christmas joy nonsense!
I thought you greeks loved christmas, lots of good eatin, presents and toys for the children, time spent with the family, and a good reason to skip work.
But after reading this I understand;
St. Nicholas is important in Greece as the patron saint of sailors. According to Greek tradition, his clothes are drenched with brine, his beard drips with seawater, and his face is covered with perspiration because he has been working hard against the waves to reach sinking ships and rescue them from the angry sea.
You guys have it all wrong, this guy isn't any fun, bunch of soggy toys under the tree, and he probably leaves a huge mess to clean up.
Come to Canada and we'll show you how it's done.
