Italian Christmas- Religion

Posted by Jo Linsdell  |  No comments

Italian traditions are heavily based on the religion of Christianity and celebrations begin in early December and continue throughout the month.

A strict fast is observed 24 hours before Christmas after which a meal with many dishes (but no meat) is served. Eight days before Christmas a special Novena of prayers and church services begin.

For those attending Midnight Mass on Christmas eve in churches throughout the country there is normally a presepio, enthusiastic singing, lots of ceremonial splendour and candlelight.
