Yes, Yes it’s A Christmas post!

Spring is in the air, but before we start enjoy it, I want to remind you about winter … Hahaha, I want to be a little cheeky and tell my story when it’s all past and quite, and I can have all attention to me.
My favorite thing about Italians is that they like and they keep their traditions. Family is very important for Italian people and Christmas celebration is a good reason for the familys’ reunion.
Day before Christmas, by the tradition, on the table will be only fish meals, nobody eat meat.
