Buone Feste a Tutti!

At Home in Rome is going on a holiday hiatus, so see you next year!

Thanks for making my new experiment in blogging this year such a delightful success, and grazie for sharing in my adventures and observations. I'm sure that 2007 will provide us with many more of these "behind the scenes in Rome" moments.

While you're enjoying your eggnog, why not browse some of these holiday treats?
Or, if you're new around here, take a look some of my most popular posts:

Rome as I See It
A.k.a., what Roman gladiators do on their coffee break

Charcoal, Propane Tanks, and Soccer Balls
Meet Ascenzo, probably the oldest man in my neighborhood, still going strong

Maybe You Shouldn't Do As the Romans Do

A lively discussion over an American writer's field day with Italian stereotypes

Priest of the Month
No, the Vatican has not contacted me on this one...yet

The Cofffee With Three F's
Get a caffeine fix just by looking at your screen

Fabio, my bionic supercousin
It's all in the family

BUONE FESTE A TUTTI!

The blog rocks. I love it and I'm so glad you came online to woo us with everything Rome and Italy this year.

And, I'm glad you're coming to the US , even though I won't get to see you. I know your folks are glad you're on your way.

Fly safe and happy holidays!

(PS Also open your gift as soon as you get to your Mom's - part of it is perishable - yummy)
