200 Santas walking in the streets

p1010046.jpgLast Friday night  200 Santas walked in the streets of Alessandria.

They were wearing just Santa’s red costume and nothing else even if it was a very , very cold night(- 3 degrees). They started from Piazza della Libertà in the centre of our town and ran or just walked for four kilometres in various streets. At the end of their walk they were offered vin brulè( a sort of hot wine with spices) , tea and focaccia (typical flat bread made with olive oil and salt).

This slow march had been organized for the first year by Lilt (Lega italiana lotta ai tumori) a charity that collects money to help people suffering from tumour . Adults , children and even a dog took part  in it and at the end they were tired but very proud.

Don’t forget…The Italian for “Santa Claus” is “Babbo Natale”. Bye:-)

    Hi my name is Darren they must have been freezing.
    They were probably walking for a long time.
    They must have been very proud of themselves to do that.
    The Irish for Santa Claus is Daidí na Nollag (Father Christmas).
    I won’t forget Babbo Natale is Italian for Santa Claus.
