Greece or canary island travel in December

Hi team,
I am planning a holiday in mid of December. I am confused between greece (athens &; santorini) and canary island. I have 5 days n 4 nights.
Can you suggest which one would be better.
Also let me know regarding weather conditions.

Get a map and see where the Canary Islands are.

It depends what you are looking for in your vacation. Athens and Santorini will be "off-season". fewer people, fewer things open on Santorini, but still enough to make an OK time. Weather can be sunny, but more likely cloudy/rainy and in the 60's (F)

The Canaries will just be coming into higher season, may want to do some planning if you are thinking Christmas, so more activity and services than Greece. Weather will be more in the 80's.

Overall, the Canaries would be warmer and more of a destination at that time...unless you are really into history and ancient sites.
