Week 25: My Favorite Holiday

Christmas is my favorite holiday, although after 20 Christmases in Florida it is still a little weird not having snow and cold to carry me though the festive season. But you don’t need snow and cold to embellish, and that’s what Christmas decorating is all about. I like to embellish my table when guest are coming. Last month we entertained our fellow 2017 Sicilian travelers at a potluck dinner for 10. In addition to using Christmas china and “crackers,” the centerpiece consisted of objects from Italy, such as a Murano glass sculpture of birds, a ceramic statue of a judge, a marble statue of Paulina (Napoleon’s sister) and Italian flags, as well as silver bells, candles, a crystal cat, glass trees and deer,  and holiday sparkly fruit and berries. Of course, there was no room on the table for food, so we did a buffet!
