La Mozzarella in Carrozza - December: you can love or hate it

Surely, you cannot ignore the last month of the year. How can you walk down the street without being fascinated by the Christmas lights and decorations? And what about seeing panettoni, pandoro, chocolate bars and torrone everywhere? Well, I think that we all have the Christmas spirit. Anyway Everyone lives it in a different way.

Personally, I really do love Christmas, since I was a child. It was a magic period, the period of toys, Santa Claus letters, school Christmas plays and time spent with the family. This is the period of the year in which I remember my childhood the most: Eating with family, playing at board games, waiting for midnight to open all the presents. Then, everything has changed and this tradition I loved so much has vanished in time. Luckily, I have my children. Thanks to them I can live those moments again and I think they're really lucky to be young. They still wish and believe.

I conclude this post with a quote of Erma Bombeck:

"There's nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child."

Merry Christmas, my friends.
