In Greece, kalikantzeri are goblins that appear from the earth during the 12 days of Christmas. They're known to engage in mischievous behavior during this time. Honestly, I didn't know anything about "kalikantzerakia" until this year when our children came home and excitedly told us that they'd perform as the goblins during their school Christmas program this year.

The little kalikantzerakia causing trouble!

The lights were low and the costumes and the background were glowing.

Both of my goblins tossing confetti simultaneously.

They had a great time performing with their friends and the program was adorable!


  1. my kids were involved in a christmas pageant like this one a few years ago. this year we got the chance to see them as chiumney sweeps and ballerinas!

    We saw them beating the trees in Spain. We have 6 other trees that we'll be picking after xmas and they will be hit... good for you to get the stress and tension out.
