Italy Holiday Traditions: Embrace La Dolce Vita

Warning! This blog about Italy Holiday Traditions is highly recommended for reading for those who:

– Like to crush grapes with his feet to the songs of Andriano Celentano;

– Sit in a checkered blanket with a cat on their lap (you need to respect this person);

– Does not break spaghetti in half (this is almost a crime!)

 –And, of course, for all of those who loves Italia as much as I do!

Q: Where do people take vacations that revolve around food?

A: Eat-aly.

Chao, lovely readers! Frankly speaking, I think I was Italian, in a pasta-life. And it’s not a surprise that I have faced a great desire to write an Italian holiday aperitivo-guide for those of you fond of festivals, rejoicing, stunning pastas, and probably wine.

(Not to mention the sounds of laughter, glass tinkling, and a strong desire to write a reckless text message to your ex.)

Oops, we won’t tell anyone!

Whether planning your next vacation to Italy or just curious about its fascinating culture, knowing the calendar of holidays is important. This remains exceptionally true if you plan to surprise your friends, family, or business associates in Italy with timely gifts. The holidays can be great fun to experience (we know that!) and truly dive into the local culture, but it’s always best to prepare!

Hey, do you see it?

Mother’s Day is hiding and winking at you just around the corner! This year in the USA and many other countries, Mother’s Day falls on May 14th. Make sure you double-check the date for the country you’re in!
