muggleme: (X-mas)
[personal profile] muggleme
Being a Catholic, I celebrate December the 8th, the Annunciation of the Angel to the Virgin that she's with a baby boy, the Son of God. We usually go to Mass on that day and spend the day decorating the house for Xmas: most families put up a tree and a nativity. The day is usually spent at home with family. 
Of course, for the same reason as before, I also celebrate December 25th, Xmas day. It starts at midnight in the night between 24th and 25th when there's the Holy Mass. Then we exhange pressies with friends in front of the church and are never home untill 2 am. We have a big lunch with family and have a few hours rest in the afternoon before we go back to eat a big dinner with family again. Xmas days can ben tiresome, but it's my favourite day ever!
We're off work on 26th also, but I wouldn't say we really celebrate it. We rather spend the day at home, eating leftovers and reading, watching tv and (me) writing. 
Then comes December the 31st, when we celebrate Silvester's. I think I celebrate this one because it'd not be considered as "normal" not to! But I am not one for Silvester's, not at all! Anyway, we usually have a big dinner (yes, in Italy we're all about eating...lol) with friends. Usually we cook it ourselves so that we save money. We end the year eating and start into the new year toasting with sparkly wine and then playing card games and role games and board games untill the crack of dawn!
