The festive traditions in Larnaca mostly revolve around food. It is also a time when those practising Greek Orthodoxy fast for 40 days to cleanse their bodies and celebrate the birth of Christ. Just around Christmas, the city decks up with some wondrous scenery, bursting with the festive spirit. The streets are beautifully decorated, and you can also witness door-to-door carolling as groups of friends carrying triangles and other musical instruments enthusiastically singing hymns. They also get hearty rewards like popular local sweets (kourabiedes and melomakarona) or money.
