l’Immacolata Concezione – Immaculate Conception

Oggi, 8 dicembre, è festa nazionale in Italia. Si festeggia l’Immacolata Concezione.

Che cosa vuol dire?

La Vergine Maria è nata senza il peccato originale: concepita come tutti dai suoi genitori, è stata preservata da Dio dal peccato originale.
Essendo questa una festa nazionale, oggi è giorno di riposo per tutti gli italiani.
L’8 dicembre è l’evento che apre il periodo natalizio; ovviamente, come ogni ricorrenza, anche questa è un’occasione per raccogliersi in famiglia e – perché no – per iniziare a gustare i piatti natalizi della ricca tradizione italiana.

Today, 8th December, is a national holiday in Italy. It is celebrated the Immaculate Conception.

What is that about?

Virgin Mary was born free from the original sin. Conceived like everyone else, she was born sinless for God’s will.
Since this is a national holiday, Italians have a day off.
The 8th December is the celebration that opens the Christmas time; just as every recurring event, this is also an occasion to spend some good time with your family and, of course, to eat some Italian traditional Christmas dishes.

Ciao!
Omar Giorgio and Samira Francesca
