ITALY IN DECEMBER
  • The Best Places to Visit in Italy in December – "No matter the season, Italy is a feast for the senses, and if visiting in December means having to substitute a cozy wine bar for an outdoor cafe, no one is a loser. When the weather in northern Italy turns damp and chilly and temperatures become cooler in the southern region, Italians head indoors to museums and theaters, or don a fashionable topcoat while strolling the shops and Christmas markets set up in town plazas. At the end of the day, Italians embrace the season with their usual passion, choosing to celebrate the arts with vigor, shop with flare and feast on dishes flavored with the season's harvest." – Robin Thornley – Source: This story is part of Travel Tips which was found within the TRAVEL section of the USATODAY – "Latest World and US News"
  • Italy in December – "While most tourists dream of visiting Italy during the summer, there are some who would visit at no other time than in December – and it’s not just because of the Christmas holiday, either." – 27 Nov, 2007 – by Jessica [Spiegel] – Source: Italy section of WhyGo – "More than simple destinations guide books 
  • Places to Go in Italy in December – "While many people visit Italy in the summer months to enjoy the sun and surf of the extensive coastline, outdoor concerts and meals made from fresh seasonal produce, they may not realize all there is to do and see in Italy during December. However, this primarily Catholic country begins its holiday celebrations early, offering visitors a plethora of attractions and events even during the last month of the year." – Amie Taylor – Source: This story is part of Travel Tips which was found within the TRAVEL section of the USATODAY – "Latest World and US News"

The Christmas Eve tradition, known as the Feast of the Seven Fishes, is perhaps the most well known of the three feasts and is characterized by an extravagant seafood menu with its twelve courses supposedly representative of the twelve apostles. As this collection of Italian Christmas recipes demonstrates, festive dishes vary from region to region. Sicilian food blogger, Antonella la Macchia celebrates Christmas Eve with irresistible dishes such as Sicilian cheese pie, Fried cod with cauliflower ‘affogato’ and Cassatelle di Agira – Sicilian stuffed pastries, while Northern Italian chefs the Costardi Brothers’ Red mullet with capers, black olive and tomato would be an excellent choice for your own Feast of the Seven Fishes." – "About us" – Source: GREAT ITALIAN CHEFS – "Inspiring food lovers everywhere"

Because when I tell my family we’re having “macedonia” for dessert it sounds so much more intriguing. That romantic ideal that many Italophiles (including yours truly) have attached to the sound of Italian words for mundane things can also extend to the Italian stories we hear while we travel through the country. Even if there’s evidence to the contrary, it can be fun to believe stories that just sound good.Well-meaning tour guides or travel writers have perpetuated some Italian myths, perhaps because they didn’t do their homework or because they just like the sound of the myth. Well, I like truths, even if they come at the expense of something that sounds more romantic.
