Un augurio di Buon Natale a tutti!

I received a few SMS from my Italian friends wishing me a Buon Natale (Merry Christmas). Many of them sent messages after dinner while others waited until midnight to send them to me. It was very sweet since these days not many of my Italian friends send cards and even fewer send emails.

When we woke up this morning, it was overcast and misty. As the day went on, the rain began to fall more and more steadily. We were planning on going out to eat dinner, but the restaurant in our street, which we've been planning on trying for the past year, was closed.

Dave and I walked to the Chinese take-away around the corner and ordered some food. It wasn't as spectacular as we would've liked, but the rainy weather didn't leave us many options.
