Christmas Countdown - 3 days

Lookig some decades back, the decoration of a boat in any home instead of the familiar to all of us, Christmas tree, was the Christmas tradition in Greece, as it is a country with a long maritime tradition. The boat symbolises the new sailing of human in life, after the birth of Christ. 
About 50 years ago, we could see during Christmas a little boat decorated in almost every greek house especially in islands, or in the hands of children who said Carols in the Christmas eve. It is a tradition which has declined during the time and has been replaced by the Christmas tree, but no one seems to have forgotten it.
