Merry Christmas: Eurovision Advent calendar day 6

Warm up to Christmas by listening to the beautiful carols performed by Eurovision artists. Each day until Christmas features a new act giving their version of a Christmas song. As sixth, we listen to Sakis Rouvas.

Sakis Rouvas has represented Greece twice at the Eurovision Song Contest, and furthermore also hosted the contest in 2006 following the country’s only win. In 2004, he finished third with the catchy song Shake It, and when he returned five years later, This Is Our Night came 7th.

The song we picked for our advent calendar today is by Sakis and titled Xronia Polla, which literally translates to “a lot of years to you”. It’s a Greek phrase used as a greeting for Christmas, New Year, birthdays etc.

In this Christmas edition of the song, he sings about being depressed a Christmas because he misses the one he loves. They had been together for a long time, and when he sees all the decorations around him, he feel sad. He hopes that this person will soon come knocking on his door and come back to him. We don’t get a happy ending, in fact we don’t get any ending. We just hear his feelings. Not exactly your happy romantic Christmas ending, but it’s still a nice song and easy to sing a long to.
