The most romantic Christmas since 1977
After 38 years, the “Full Cold Moon” – as the last full moon of the year is known – is due to make its appearance on Christmas Day. According to NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, the impressive December moon will be visible in Greece, hitting peak fullness at 13:11 local time. Since it is expected to be a very special, particularly enchanting night, it may be worth enjoying from one of the city’s roof gardens, sipping your cocktail of choice, or while strolling along pedestrian-only Dionysou Areopagitou Street in Thissio, where you can take some photos of the Acropolis bathed in moonlight, or perhaps from Lycabettus Hill. This is a favorite spot for Athenians looking for a bird’s-eye view of Athens with a beer or soft drink from the canteen that stays open round the clock. Whatever you decide, don’t miss it! Your next opportunity will be in 2034.
