Today, the 15th of August, also known as ‘ferragosto’ is a holiday in Italy. It was originally introduced as a celebration for the end of a long and intense farming and a good harvest.
Traditionally horse races was organized and farm animals had a day off and were decorated with flowers.
Nowadays Italians would typically just go for a beach holiday or a vacation in the mountains. While Cart and I would normally just stuff our faces with food in a restaurant somewhere in Italy 😛
So happy holidays to all and have a lovely weekend 🙂
