Submitted by Santamarinese on Thu, 12/09/2010 - 10:03 In reply to Italians traditionally put up by Andiamo .........................just a few decorations. Only said the other day "should we be taking our Christmas tree with us to Italy when we move there" to my husband. He didn't know the answer, but I suspect someone here can tell me what is the norm for Italy.

That happened yesterday: now everybody has followed her lead and the piazza is truly glowing. It is less about globalised Christmas, more about solidarity with your neighbours. Just a thought...

Sharing with others both the joy and the sorrow. My father died on Christmas Day, so it is always hard for me to get into the joyful spirit.
