Christmas Eve Dinner
I have always been told that you are supposed to eat
12 kinds of fish/seafood for Christmas Eve dinner. The reason being, one seafood for each of Christ’s Apostles as they were considered “Fishers of Men”. I actually don’t have any idea how Christmas is celebrated in Italy and
I got on this page hoping to find out. The only thing I was ever told by my family was about the meatless 12-fish Christmas Eve tradition.
(Editor’s Note: We have also heard about the Italian Christmas Eve custom “Night of the Seven Fish.” If you have information about either tradition, please e-mail [email protected])
