It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Especially this year, even more so than before, Christmas is a time to remember the importance of family, community, and unity among people. And there seems to be an online community of little Greeks, an online family of Greeks as they describe it that wanted to promote a message of unity, hope, and spread holiday cheer around the world. They are the young students of the worldwide online Greek School, Greek Lessons OnLine, who prepared a Christmas surprise for all of you.

Around 100 young Greek LOL students from London to Adelaide, from the Netherlands to San Jose, and from Switzerland to Vancouver united their loud and proud Greek voices to send a message of hope and unity to the whole world. They learned the lyrics, they put on their Christmas outfits, they sat in the most festive corner of their homes and they recorded themselves singing Trigona Kalanta for the whole world to hear.
