 Complete with dancing waiters, golden tickets that the conductor punched, hot chocolate and cookies, Santa, and a bell for the believers.

We were in Santorini for 3 days.
There weren't any big attractions but, come on, just look at this.  I could have stayed here forever.

We took a painting class.  None of us are artists but our teacher somehow made our art turn out great.
