  • [01] Greeks launch 2007 in style

    Greeks welcomed the start of the new year in all-night celebrations around the country, including a showcase fiesta in Athens with music, dance and fireworks in three central squares.

    The events arranged by the outgoing mayor of Athens, Theodoros Behrakis, also marked handover of the city to his successor, Nikitas Kaklamanis.

    "Together we are ushering in 2007, and together we will work to make Athens brighter, more beautiful and more humane, so that it becomes Europe's perpetual cultural capital," Kaklamanis told cheering crowds.

    On Monday, President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias received the country's political, religious, military, judicial and law enforcement leaders, who paid a customary visit to the head of state for an exchange of good wishes.

    Among Papoulias' guests were the prime minister, Archbishop Christodoulos of Athens and All Greece, opposition party leaders, ministers, and parliamentary deputies.

    Earlier in the day, the archbishop led a traditional New Year's Day service at Athens Cathedral.
