Merry Christmas Rick Steves!

As usual, Rick Steves is awesome. Here he is explaining Christmas traditions in Italy. It's like he knew this would be perfect for my blog.

A couple of notes:

1.That part about the witches coming to bring the gifts is true. So they have baby Jesus, Babbo Natale, and La Bafana the witch, all who bring gifts. (and I thought I was lucky I had 3 sets of grandparents for Christmas gifts).
2. Obviously Italians don't like fruit cake either.
3. Panattone is not fruit cake, but it's pretty close.
