PASQUETTA – Little Easter

EASTER BASKETSToday is Pasqua in Italy and Easter here in the US.

Tomorrow is Pasquetta in Italy…and, sorry, it’s just back to work here in America.EASTER EGGS

 

 

If you know the Italian language then you recognize that the suffix etta is a dimunitive altering the root word.  Casa is house and casetta is little house, hence Pasquetta means little Easter.  Not a religious holiday, instead little Easter in Italy means you typically head for the countryside and enjoy a picnic or lunch on a picturesque veranda with friends and family.

So even a little knowledge when it comes to another language is a wonderful thing.  You should try it with Tutto italiano’s program.  You speak, learn, and enjoy—and that is benissimo!
