Celebration: La Pasquetta

Ah…Monday morning. I’m feeling a bit jealous of those people who have an extra day off today!

This weekend I learned that when my mom was growing up in Italy, Easter Monday – la Pasquetta – was a day for packing up the Easter Sunday leftovers and taking them to a space al fresco (outdoors) to have a picnic with family and friends.

I think Lorea Sinclaire’s Tiffin lunch kit would be perfect for a beautiful Easter Monday picnic, don’t you? Mind you – the way Italians tend to feast, we would need quite a few of these!

I would love to continue this tradition but work calls instead. How about you? Do you have the day off today? What are your plans?

p.s. I can’t believe I didn’t know about this Italian tradition before yesterday.
