On Christmas Eve the whole family comes together because Christmas is a real family gathering. As usual the Christmas dinner is a real treat because la mamma makes the most delicious homemade dishes. Christmas Eve is also called the night of the 7 dinners. This tradition has a religious origin and is a reference to the 7 sacraments. A traditional menu in Tuscany, for example, could be like this: pasta with chickpeas, toasted bread with Tuscan cabbage, pasta with nuts, baked cod, marinated olives, and finally for dessert dough rings and Panforte both prepared with chestnut flour.
