Much less well-known and popular as the familiar Christmas and New Year kalanda, or carols that Greeks sing during the holiday period are the Epiphany Carols.
Just like during Christmas and New Year, children sing these carols throughout towns and villages of Greece, but also during the cross throwing celebrations that take place throughout the Greek world.
In our effort to continue to share these wonderful traditions, find below a YouTube video with lyrics, as well as sheet music for the traditional Epiphany kalanda.
