Italy – Feast of the 7 Fishes
One of the oldest Christmas traditions in Italy is kids wearing shepherd hats and sandals singing carols and playing songs. On Christmas Eve, people enjoy a dinner of only seafood and then go out to a Midnight Mass service. Once they’ve returned home, they have some “Panettone,” an Italian Christmas cake. On Christmas Day, the food consists of “the feast of the seven fishes,” with seafood delicacies such as calamari, baccala, eel, sardines, and clams.
