More Italian Christmas Traditions: Babbo Natale
Do you remember writing a letter to Santa and sending it to the North Pole?
|The tree may be more than 15 feet high and 1/2 covered with letters to Babbo Natale|
I do not know if Italian children send letters via mail to Babbo Natale but they DO hang them on a Christmas tree!
This was a delightful surprise when I arrived in Rome. The main train station is NOT the best place to find holiday cheer but this tree with children’s letters was very enjoyable.
