Today was so special! Although I'm excited to head to Australia soon (just two more weeks!), I was disappointed at not being able to spend Christmas here in Italy. I haven't had a "white Christmas" for several years now, and was looking forward to bundling up cozy next to a fire during the cold weather. But this morning, my sweet French friend surprised me and took me to a Christmas Village here in Cittadella! I had no idea that the village even existed, but I loved it! It definitely got me in the Christmas spirit and sufficed for the "wintery-Christmas" I was hoping for. I will miss my friends and Italian family when I leave, but luckily I will be back in March for Italian spring! Well anyways, I am excited to see how Christmas is celebrated in Australia!
