Like many places around the world, Crete also welcomed the year 2024 with a bang. As every year, local authorities in Heraklion and Chania prepared concerts and fireworks shows that attracted crowds of residents. In Chania, the festive mood lasted from noon when tables were set in front of shops, on the promenades and along larger streets, barbecues were lit and music was played. Those who went for some last minute shopping or a walk during the day had the opportunity to feel the Christmas atmosphere faster.

Welcoming the New Year in Chania

This time it's a girl

On the first day of the new year, Greek media also customarily report on the birth of the first "New Year's" child. This time it was a girl who, as it turned out, was not only the first child in Crete but also in all of Greece. The baby was born 53 minutes after midnight in the hospital in Rethymno.

Protohronia, or Greek New Year's Eve

In many respects, this evening is celebrated in Greece in almost the same way as in other parts of Europe. What definitely distinguishes the Greeks is the fact that on this day Agios Vassillis comes to their homes, who is the equivalent of Saint from Caesarea. Nicholas.

A characteristic element of these holidays is the vasilopita cake, in which coins are hidden. Receiving a piece containing money can be interpreted as a sign of prosperity and happiness in the coming year.

After midnight, it is also customary to turn off the light for a few seconds. Its re-lighting symbolizes a new beginning. If New Year's Eve is celebrated outside the home, Greeks try to cross the threshold with the right foot when returning home, which is supposed to bring good luck to the house.

An interesting and well-known New Year's custom in Greece is breaking a pomegranate to bring prosperity and happiness to the house. The grenade should be thrown with all your strength with your right hand behind the entrance door onto the floor.
