181 – Giada’s First Communion Day

First Communion Itri Italy

In June we were invited by our friends Davide and Nandi to attend their daughter’s First Communion ceremony.

We arrived to find the church full to the brim and the service had already got underway.

We soon spotted Giada looking very beautiful.  

Here, in Italy, all children wear the same outfit – so there is no competition as to who has the prettiest dress, which I think is a very sensible solution.

  1. lovely, questions:
    do the bows on the last few photos represent something special?
    what type of gifts are given for this event?

    just comparing Italy to the Italian/american version, thanks
