"The Christmas Boat is an old Greek tradition known as “Karavaki”, meaning little ship. This holiday tradition still thrives today. In Greece, around the holidays, it is tradition to decorate your boat with lights. If the family did not own a boat, they would use small model boats to decorate. Children carried the model boats around along with musical instruments as they sang carols to their neighbors. Some families would place the model boat near the fireplace or on display at the front door as their Christmas Boat. Boats represent a powerful symbol in Greece of moving towards a new life."
