Monday’s Music Moves Me: Xmas Music Xtravaganza 2020, Part 1!

Here we are again! Time for a month of Christmas music, what I call the Xmas Music Xtravaganza!

I want people to understand that abbreviating Christmas as Xmas is not meant to offend anyone. Using X to represent Jesus is a tradition dating back to the days of the early church. The letter X looks exactly like the Greek letter chi, the first letter of Χριστος (Christos, "Christ").

In recognition of this fact, here are 45 minutes of Christmas songs in Greek. A list of the songs follows, fortunately in English.

  1. Angie Samiou – The sweetest Christmas
  2. Greetings – This Christmas
  3. Onirama – In the City of Angels
  4. Despina Vandi – Christmas
  5. Stan – This year at Christmas
  6. Thanos Kalliris – Christmas with You
  7. Paei o palios o hronos, Happy New Year
  8. Zuzounia – Oh Fir
  9. Spicy Artists – Christmas
  10. Christmas Carols – Good evening Lords – Greek christmas carol
  11. Trigona kalanta
  12. The Little Drummer
  13. Despina Vandi – Carols

Sit back, enjoy the video and the music! Opaa! That’s Monday’s Music Moves Me for December 7, 2020.

Monday’s Music Moves Me is sponsored by Marie, Cathy, Alana, and Stacy, so be sure and visit them, where you can also find the Linky for the other participants.

  1. I enjoyed those beautiful street scenes and hearing Jingle Bells and The Little Drummer Boy in Greek. If we can listen to some Christmas carols commonly sung in Latin (Adestes Fideles comes to mind) then why not Greek? Huzzah for an original presentation.


  2. Yep, I totally agree with Cathy…. “It’s all Greek to me”! hahaha but you know what that was fun, and oh so very pretty filming and Christmas decorations. I love that part the best. You go John… a very unique idea! Merry Christmas… ho ho ooooooooooo paaaaaaaaaaa


    1. The great thing is, you have no idea what they’re saying, and it doesn’t matter. You can enjoy the music, and isn’t that what it’s all about?


  3. John,

    This is all Greek to me! No not that Xmas isn’t meant to be an offensive spelling as I learned that many years ago and am happy to have done so. What a fun spin on this week’s song choices! I had not thought to go this route, so glad that you did, though. kalá Christoúgenna to you, my friend! 🙂
