Elizabeth Doub: my easter celebrations

di Elizabeth Doub*

Last weekend was Easter and for many, including myself was a reason to celebrate. For me It was also the start of spring break, and my family came to visit for the week. Usually at home for Easter, we go to church in the morning and then out to brunch or cook a big dinner at home. In Italy, however, I notice that thing are a bit more festive. There was a small street festival and there were booths set up around town. I also noticed that many stores and cafes were open, despite the fact that it was Sunday. Other Sundays I have been out and about in Viterbo, most places have been closed, at least in the afternoon. This day, the town had a lively and festive atmosphere. Since my family was visiting, they wanted to experience an Italian Easter, so we walked around and took in the scene. Afterwards I tried my best to make a nice dinner, putting my new cooking skills to use. It was fun and relaxing evening and the meal turned out great thankfully. I made chicken Parmesan and a cous cous dish that I learned how to make in cooking class and we bought some drinks from the grocery store. It turned out to be a lovely evening and I am so grateful everyone was able to come together for the holiday. I’d like to learn more about the specifics of Italian Easter celebrations, but it was also nice to feel at home.
