The Most Beautiful Christmas Ornament

Children's Event


Children’s book author Angeliki Darlassi narrates a true Christmas story


Celebrating her book, The Most Beautiful Christmas Ornament, illustrated by Alexia Othoneou and published by Metaichmio Publications, the Hellenic American Union invites the author to meet young book lovers online.


In the event, Angeliki Darlassi recounts the true story of a historic ceasefire that happened at Christmas over 100 years ago during the Great War. Following the adventure of a boy (who looks a bit like an elf…), we discover what the most valuable Christmas ornament is: Peace on Earth in fellowship.


The event takes place online via Zoom and participation is free (with reservations) for all.
