Christmas Time- ITALY

In Taranto, the Christmas atmosphere start to feel on the 22nd of November ( Saint Cecily’s Day ), when the band plays through the streets traditional Xmas music. Women prepare the “pettole” (sweet pancakes ) and people start to join with their friends and relatives, at home, to play cards or “tombola” ( a game like bingo).Another important day is the 8th of December ( Virgin’s Day ). People start to prepare the Xmas tree or the Crib, just in these days.
