Happy New Year!!

Unfortunately I'm getting over a cold so I did not go out last night.

Clearly Rome threw down. There were fireworks at the Colosseum, Piazza del Popolo, I think Pz Navona and next door. I'm kidding about next door but it sounded like rockets were being launched right by my building. I was too sick to actually go down the street to see if there were in fact fireworks in the piazza.

I did look at the window and the sky was light up.

Here's a little clip from last year's celebration at the Colosseum.

I am very excited about 2009.

Happy New Year! Did rome have illegal fireworks? Florence had so many people setting off illegal fireworks, drunks everywhere and broken champagne bottles everywhere that we regretted going out!

Thank you for sharing Italian Life Style and Traditions with us! I love to read your blog for two reasons: 1. You are a fellow Long Islander and 2. You share the one place I dream to live at. Being of Italian Roots, I love to remember everything about the holidays. Your site helps me to live my dream through your eyes! Thank you.
