(This note has become a tradition in its own right here at ItalianNotebook.. re-publishing it for both the newer as well as less recent readers.)
Apologies in advance, but with an image like this one it proved difficult to invoke the more reverent and holy aspects of the Christmas and New Year holidays (which are of course in no way less respectfully considered). In light of this, it has been decided that this more lighthearted but by no means less heartfelt final note for 2014 go out today.
Hoping that the holidays have you in the warm embrace of family and friends, celebrating together all that is important to you, we the editor, staff, and contributors of ItalianNotebook are honored to inform you that…Caesar Santa omnibus salutem plurimam dicit.
(Caesar Santa wishes everyone many greetings!)
Auguri a tutti! We’ll be back in the New Year.
(Thank you Mike Minadeo for this great shot!)
