Greek butcher in the run up to New Year's eve celebration

Although Greek celebrate Christmas day like everyone else the real big celebration is New Year's when families get together and often eat lamb or kid goat.

This was taken in the Kapani central market just hours before stores closed for the holidays and shoppers were looking for last minute bargains. Of course, most Greek do their shopping in supermarkets but many still prefer places like this as the prices are lower and the produce fresher. Still, if you are not used to seeing meat presented in this manner it can come as a bit of a shock.
