In my family we celebrate Christmas with the Italian tradition of the Feast of the Seven Fishes. It is the only time of year when we move all of the furniture out of the living room to make room for two long tables and 19 guests. The night is a huge party that lasts until 1AM, complete with videos, singing, jokes, a bonfire, and plenty of delicious food and drinks. This year my parents came up with the idea of a retro Italian theme. Our living room was transformed with tinsel, big colored lights, glittery bells, melted snow trim, a nativity scene, and multiple santa figures. The effect was spot on. I helped to decorate the tree with metallic glass balls, Santa faces, and other ornaments. I helped set the table with popping crackers and Santa place cards. Can you tell how much fun we had?
