December 23, 2020

LONDON – Greek Lessons OnLine (Greek LOL) shared the following special Christmas message along with a video of its students performing the Greek version of Jingle Bells (Trigona Kalanta) from their homes around the world.

The Greek LOL statement read, “In our worldwide online Greek School, learning Greek is not a chore for our students but an experience. A learning experience but most importantly a community experience, a family experience. And families celebrate Christmas together even when they have to be apart. Our young students put smiles on our faces every day and this year, these difficult days we all have to go through they decided to do something to put a smile on everybody’s face.

“Around 100 Greek LOL students from every corner of the world wore their Christmas outfits, put on their festive props and sang Jingle Bells in Greek uniting their voices from London to Adelaide, from the Netherlands to San Jose, from Switzerland to Vancouver to send a message of hope and unity to the whole world.

“Enjoy our amazing little Greeks and feel free to help them spread the holiday cheer they wanted to send to all of you. Merry Christmas!”
