My Christmas has always been a party to be enjoyed as a family: we would have dinner together and then we went to Mass to see the baby Jesus born at midnight precisely, when the veil that covered the cradle with the precious wooden statue, was pushed aside and the bells of the Church of San Giovanni began to ring in celebration.
Then we greeted each other and went home, knowing that tomorrow we would all be together again for Christmas lunch.
We children were happy with that joyful atmosphere that we breathed and of the small nativity scene on the chest of the living room, full of colored lights, with the mountains of papier-mâché and the covered hut of moss taken from the garden.
