Ciao pinelle and pinelli, today I’m going to tell you about a special evening that has always been a very important time for me!
On 19 December I organised a pre-Christmas dinner at my place to see all my loved ones before the holidays. I organise it every year, because when you have kids and then you separate, there is a schedule to be followed so that the kids can spend a bit of time with both parents and enjoy the magic of Christmas together!
That’s why, for the past few years, we celebrate an early Christmas, which we call Natalino, or little Christmas, to bring the whole family together, unwrap presents and, for the smaller family members, wait for Santa Claus! And once we’ve all eaten and played with the children etc… us adults challenge each other in the classic board games in perfect Christmas style!
Of course, Christmas Eve is still the most important night, but we celebrate that in a different way, perhaps even more intimately.
Here are some private snaps, where you can see the whole extended family … I like to think, and I hope too, that despite the separations, we can spend quality time together and give the children peace of mind.
I hope all of you who follow me have a peaceful Christmas full of love. My thoughts are particularly with those who are going through difficult times, with those who have no family, and all those who have lost hope… I really hope things will change for the better. Lots and lots of kisses to you all…
