Lighting of the Christmas tree at the Hotel Grande Bretagne

Athens, December 4th 2023 – The Hotel Grande Bretagne in Athens kicked off the holiday season with its traditional Christmas Tree lighting event, held in a joyous atmosphere within its lobby. The ceremony featured delightful Christmas carols performed by the children’s choir of the educational institution “Themistoklis.” Representatives from the Non-Profit Civil Partnership “Together for Children” were also in attendance, providing guests with information about their significant initiatives.

Amidst the enchanting Christmas ambiance, everyone savored the moment, exchanging warm wishes and enjoying the debut of the Hotel’s new Christmas video.
