The Society traditionally celebrates the Christmas Holidays with a musical program and pot-luck dinner featuring traditional Italian dishes. The Festa begins with a vocal or piano performance of Italian music, the singing performance of the kids (students of the ILP + other little friends who are welcome to join); then, a sing-along of carols, followed by the appearance of Babbo Natale, his elves and La Befana. Decorations include a tree and an elaborate Presepio of the Nativity scene. There is a special program of activities for smaller children in the separate rooms during the musical performance, after which, they are brought in to the main room for the kids’ performance and Babbo’s visit. Parents are invited to bring gifts with the name of a child clearly visible for Babbo and his helpers to distribute.
A special Thanks to the Association Le D.I.V.E., who collaborate again in the organization of this event, providing art and crafts entertainment for children.
