Assumption of Mary, 15th of August

Today, the 15th of August, we celebrate the day the Virgin Mary entered heaven. It's a public holiday all over the Christian world, and in many European countries. The holiday always falls on the 15th of August, no matter what day of the week that happens to be. 

Today 15th of August, 2022, is Monday. 

Many Italians who are already on holiday don't go abroad this Summer. The sea is increasingly gathering people on its beauriful beaches. 

Have a nice week!

Hi Giorgio! We in Poland celebrate bouquets made of field flowers and cereals in churches today! Unfortunately, most often the tradition is cultivated by older people and bouquets have children (unfortunately, not all). Young people are unlikely to celebrate this tradition....
P.S.1. Giorgio I agree with Olga: beautiful photos!
P.S.2. Giorgio do you have Facebook?

Hi Anna,
Great to hear about your country's tradition on 15th of August:-)

I am not a facebooker. Sorry for that! That's my email address:

In addition to this I have a Telegram account. Let me know if it suits you.

Have a nice week!

The Catholic community celebrates this day too over here in our corner of the world.

Beautiful photos as always, Giorgio.
