They have a trditional meal which consists of spehgetti, turkey, rabbit, chicken, and raisin bread. Champagne is the drink of the evening. On the 16th -25th they have special masses. the main religon is Christianity. Christams lasts from Dec.16th- Jan. 6th. Befana is their Santa Claus.
Instead of writing letters to Santa to ask for presents, Italian children write to tell their parents how much they love them. The letter is normally placed under their father…'s plate and read after Christmas Eve dinner. Nowadays, especially in northern Italy, many families decorate an evergreen tree in their home. Ceppo: The ceppo is a wooden frame several feet high designed in a pyramid shape. This frame supports several tiers of shelves, often with a manger scene on the bottom followed by small gifts of fruit, candy, and presents on the shelves above. The "Tree of Light," as it is also know, is entirely decorated with colored paper, gilt pinecones, and miniature colored pennants. Small candles are fastened to the tapering sides and a star or small doll is hung at the apex. Urn of Fate: An old tradition in Italy calls for each member of the family to take turns drawing a wrapped gift out of a large ornamental bowl until all the presents are distributed.
