The country I am doing is Greece. Their decorations that go on their tree symbolize the real gifts on the family trees.The Christmas season begins with 40 days of fasting. The week before Christmas, Greek families begin baking. One of the baked items is the Christ's bread (Christopsomo), sweet bread made into large loaves of various shapes.The remainder of the loaf is divided among the family. Before those pieces are eaten, each member dips his piece in wine and prays to St. Basil. The children believe that St. Basil gives gifts to them.
