What remains of Christmas?

"The Greeks have not heeded the advice of the archbishop of Athens concerning the sending of Christmas greeting cards, starting with the politicians," the daily admonishes. "Mgr Christodoulos's message was nonetheless clear: It is imperative that 2005 greeting cards, in paper or electronic version, bear a representation of the nativity scene. As a result, childrens' faces, elks, or images of Santa Claus - none of which are recognised by the Orthodox church - are forbidden. (...) But nobody has obeyed these instructions," the journal notes ironically. "The archbishop of Athens has denounced what he sees as an attack on Christianity and has once again called to order the Greeks, who have forgotten the meaning of Christmas."
