The custom of vasilopita conveys the message of unity, equality, love, justice, communication. In this year’s e-Vasilopita 9 flouria (Gold Coins) will be distributed to the winners, which will be dispatched through postal services, as well as other gifts which will be sent to those who win the “Olive Leaf” symbol on their piece.
The virtual cutting of e-vasilopita has been annually held since 2005, by initiative of the World Council of Hellenes Abroad (SAE), aiming to give the youth an opportunity to become further familiarized with Greek customs and traditions, through familiar communication means (i.e. internet, facebook, etc.), in their native language.
In his address, the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Demetris Dollis, conveys his most heartfelt wishes for a happy and creative new year, to all participants.
Alternate SAE President and Coordinator of SAE Europe Region, Mr. George Amarantides from Frankfurt will be opening the New Year’s Cake cutting.
