For several years now we have enjoyed observing the Feast of St Barbara with a chocolate tower and red and white lollies. A custom from the Italian village of Zolli in the Avelino Province of Italy. St Barbara was imprisoned in a tower and the lollies remind us of her purity and martyrdom.
Our children eagerly anticipate this Feast each Advent. Then who could resist a chocolate piñata?:)
An opportunity to eat plenty of chocolate and lollies:) (Ah, yes, I fudged this year and bought only red lollies.)
