Hello from Italy, where we are going to celebrate Carnivale in the few weeks. Of course, this day, the day before the Catholic Holy Day of Ash Wednesday, goes by many different names and traditions depending on where you are from-
Carnivale in Venice is a capital B, Big deal, with tourists flocking to the city for weeks before the day itself, donning their masks and tasting the traditional sweet doughnuts, fritelle. Here in Padua, we can already see some of the other celebrations such as the children dressing up in costumes, a parade (before Covid) and the tossing of confetti.
I tend to think of many of these celebrations as a milestone for winding down the winter months and looking forward to spring. I have noticed that even this week, the days are starting to get longer again. We're no longer waking up in the dark and having to switch all the lights on to keep working from 4.
How and what will you celebrate the 21 February? Are you looking forward to the spring as much as I am??
