Hello you all!
During Christmas time here in Italy we have many different local traditions and special foods.
Family is the absolute protagonist of all the holidays: together, we do the Christmas Tree, but also the PRESEPE: a sort of nativity scene with shepherds, sheep, animals, plants, streams, artisans, travelers, and all that can remember an ancient village like Bethlehem. In the cave we place an ox, a donkey, Mary and Joseph who are waiting for the birth of the little Jesus. And... surprise! on January 6th the Magi come. Naples is the best place to buy the little statues: napoletani are very creative about that. Somewhere or some cities do the Living Presepe, with real people acting the scene! Here is a photo from internet.
Most popular cake is PANETTONE, real similar to the portuguese Bolo de mel, with sultanas, pine nuts and candied fruits.
Well this is a briefing of Christmas time generally in Italy... but in Sicily we have many traditions too!
For example, during Christmas time a lot of people use to play card games with family and friends on the evenings.
I send you a picture of Sicilian favorite holiday cake CASSATA SICILIANA. It's a cheesecake made with sheep's ricotta, chocolate drops, marzipan and candied fruits on top.
In every place there is specific holiday food: Sicilian people love eating ad cooking with others, so holidays are a huge reason to gain weight!  :D

Wish everybody a Merry Christmas!

Hello everyone!

We want to celebrate Christmas the entire Advent season / December on Instagram and for this we need your support. Our idea is to present Christmas customs / traditions from all over Europe. It would be great if you could provide us with a photo that shows a custom from your country with a very brief description. We would post one of your photos on our Instagram channel (https://www.instagram.com/rausvonzuhaus/) every day during advent.

Thank you very much for your support in advance! We look forward to many pictures. :)  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
