Buon Natale

Buon Natale Means Merry Christmas to You
Buon Natale, to Everyone
Happy New Year and Lots of Fun

Buon Natale May All Your Wishes Come True
Buon Natale in Italy Means
A Merry Christmas to You

Far Away Across the Sea
In Sunny Italy
There’s a Quaint Little Town
Not a Clock Has Been Wound
For Over a Century

They Don’t Know the Time Or Year
And no One Seems to Care
And This Is the Reason
The Christmas Season
Is Celebrated All Year

Buon Natale, Means Merry Christmas to You
Buon Natale, to Everyone
Happy New Year and Lots of Fun
Buon Natale May All Your Wishes Come True
Buon Natale in Italy Means
A Merry Christmas to You

  • Jann, this post was such a lovely gift to your readers! I couldn’t get enough of the beautiful captures! I’m so sorry I’m late to the party. This past month has been quite hectic and I took an unplanned hiatus from the blogosphere. Nevertheless, I’m so glad I was able to read and witness your beautiful photos. They are all so beautiful! The one of the two beautiful girls dressed in Santa Claus costumes is stunning! Such beauties! And the desserts! Oh my! To live in Italy! Ahh…..I sigh at the thought! Kisses! 🙂

    But I wanted to wish you love love love for 2013, dearest Jann. Xx

    Ciao, Jann,
    Buon Natale to you also. When I was Seventeen I spent the summer in Ragusa,Ibla, I never forgot it and dream of living my life there. Your blog is so passionate, with the news and the stories of that wonderful city. I never got over the aroma’s that pour out into the streets and the fragrant from the Fig trees. Its a never ending dream which I hope I can make it real.

      John, John, John!!!! Well, I don’t know how old you are now, but I’m sure it’s been much too long since you last visited! I think it would lots of fun to have you in the village, and the villagers would love having you around. The fig trees are still there, and the ever-present aroma of jasmine and lemon.

    Buon Natale Jann all the way from Valentine NSW Australia (down Under). While you’ve had a cold Christmas, our Christmas day was extremely wet and on the cool side (unlike the past hot and dry Christmases we usually have.

    Thank you for the wonderful photos and looking forward to the new year.

    Ciao, Maria Clayton
