Greek presidential guards seen during the changing of the guards ceremony outside 

Greek presidential guards seen during the changing of the guards ceremony outside the Greek parliament at the t?mb of the unknown soldier in New Year’s Eve in central Athens, Monday, Dec. 31, 2012. In austerity-weary Greece, New Year’s Eve festivities will be restrained, with Athens municipal officials saying their budget for this year has been contained to about a tenth of pre-crisis spending. In his televised New Year’s Eve message, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras promised Greeks that the worst of the crisis is past, and declared 2013 a “year of hope” that will see the beginning of the country’s rebirth.
