- Story Text: Dazzling fireworks lit up the night sky over the Acropolis hill's ancient monuments as soon as the clock struck midnight on Wednesday (January 1) as Athens ushered in the new decade.
Hundreds of residents and tourists celebrated New Year's Eve in the capital's central Syntagma square with live musical performances.
Greeks said they hoped the new year would bring peace and a better economy, after years of belt-tightening and austerity.
