Happy Anniversary Italy
Thursday, March 17 is being celebrated as the 150th anniversary of the formation of Italy as a united country. Before 1861 Italy was a loose collection of cities and city-states. At that same time, America was close to 100 years old and already having a civil war.
The sign at our local grocery announcing the store will be closed.
I know it will be a public holiday but don’t know what kind of celebrations there will be. I thought this collection of streamers from Carnevale was a good symbol for the day. Just as I am proud to be American I am also proud to be Italian.
And Ben and I both forgot until the middle of the day on Monday that it was our wedding anniversary. I guess I should get the confetti out for us.
