New Year's Day
I didn't run since December 21st to December 27th because, firstly, I had had a temperature as I mentioned in my previous post, and, secondly, the weather was rainy and cold enough. On december, 26th, beautiful live nativity scenes started in the historical centre of the town of Tarquinia (20 km North from my town). It was really interesting and the event was well organized. You can see some scenes in the first two photos here posted.
On December 31st I did 15 km relaxing run and this afternoon I didn't follow my running group because I finished working late.
Anyway, I hope all you blogger friends had a pleasant New Year's Eve celebration.
We enjoyed the dinner to celebrate New Year's Eve which we had with friends and other families. The photo above shows my friends with their children who enjoyed New Year's Eve fireworks in the streets: I'm sure that similar scenes took place from New York to Hong Kong.
Lentils and pigs' trotters are traditionally eaten in Italy on New Year's Day as a symbol of good luck, because many cultures believe that round objects symbolise money.
May all my blogger friends have an Happy New Year!
