Sunny Christmas in Kalamata, the weather was good and the nights a bit chilly. The town was decorated with few, but beautiful lights. The truth is that the decorations were not as much because of the low cost budget at the time of economic crisis in Greece, but people were not letting this to restrict them to their houses.
As soon as the sun came out in the morning, the little children rushed at the central square of the town, where all the fun took place. The Christmas tree was already in place and the carousel offered the little ones with joy and fun.

As the night arrived and the cold atmosphere began to drive the children away, the central square became less crowded and with a different set of crowd. There was time for the vacationers to stroll around. People who lived in a different town or city and visited their home town or just holiday visitors who wanted to spend the holidays at Kalamata.

I am not sure what the thought about the holiday events there, but letting the big cities behind and having a chance to breathe some non-polluted countryside air was worth the visit on its own.
Strolling around I also discovered that I could focus on details rather than on crowd. I "saw" that these were the things that I mostly kept in my mind about these few days I was on vacations.
