Italian Letters to Santa: Babbo Natale



More Italian Christmas Traditions:  Babbo Natale


Do you remember writing a letter to Santa and sending it to the North Pole?

The tree may be more than 15 feet high and 1/2 covered with letters to Babbo Natale

I do not know if Italian children send letters via mail to Babbo Natale but they DO hang them on a Christmas tree!    





This was a delightful surprise when I arrived in Rome.  The main train station is NOT the best place to find holiday cheer but this tree with children's letters was very enjoyable.

Some were short
Others were more detailed.......




Do you remember writing to Babbo Natale???

  1. The short and sweet letter reads "...la liquidazione de mio marito..." If I read this correctly, this is not at all sweet!!!!
