Greek New Year Poster.A poster from Greece welcoming the new year. It shows an unidentified Cretan boy. The translation of the Greek is unknown. This souvenir photo from Greece was sent to President Harry S. Truman by John Marangos, Editor of the Pancretan Union in America.ca. 1940

New Year’s Cake (Vasilopita)-For dessert, say the Greeks, have a slice of vasilopita (a cake of many thin layers with lots of nuts). Hope for the piece with a coin baked inside.

My Little Expat Kitchen: New Year's pomegranate.
