Italian and Italian American Christmas Traditions
Dec 22 17
Nick Zingale is back on the show with his great storytelling to talk about Christmas and the way he and his Italian American family celebrated it over the years. From the anticipation leading up to Christmas Eve, to the Feast of the Seven Fishes, to the many family gatherings. In the episode, I also talk about my own Christmas memories from growing up in northern Italy, with a special emphasis on the food.
