Holiday Gift Guide

I’ve grown up in a family that celebrates everything as far as there is food, gifts and getting together involved. There is no other month in the year like December, bringing together multicultural celebrations and becoming also a teachable moment. This year I learned that the pagans used to celebrate Yule the winter solstice and also Saturnalia in honor of deity Saturn which is a festivity that lasts from the 17th to 23rd of December. Saturnalia actually seems fun because it included public banquets, gift-giving and also gambling. I can say that the Italian Christmas is very similar given that in Milan I’ve started attending Christmas parties since early December, have gambled with friends playing cards (an activity Italians love to do just during this time of the year) and have started exchanging gifts. 

But there are so many other celebrations happening this month like: Hanukkah (Jewish), Kwanzaa (African American), Omisaka ( Japanese) and Boxing Day( Australian, Canadian, English, Irish) and I’ll count also Three Kings Day or Epiphany in early January. So finally is that time of the year when everyone is celebrating. It is also time to start hinting to family and friends what you like, meaning what you want as a gift for the December festivities.
