    1. The English equivalent is almost bedlam, with bagpipes, whisky, curry and second hand books. Lots of loudness and gusto. This change of pace, this oasis of calm was a pleasant interlude.

  3. Santa Lucia is celebrated on the 13th December here in Verona. She brings gifts and sweets to children.
    The smorgasbord looks very good.
    Greetings Maria x

    2. Do you watch Soliti e Ignoti on Rai1? I do when I get the chance. It's a way of learning. One of the tools in my Italiano workbox ;)

    3. Grazie Gwil.
      I have seen Soliti Ignoti before, but it is too late for me; I'm in bed at that time;)

    4. Grazie Maria, I just wondered. I go to bed when it finishes ;) especially in winter when it's dark and cold like now. In fact it's already dark at 4:30 where I am.

    1. I reckon you would. The table was 20 ft long! And weighed down with many kinds of bread and cakes. I had an Earl Gray tea believe it ornot.
