    Buon Anno, Michelle!

    In Naples, they often toss things they no longer want/need directly out the window at midnight on New Year’s. Does that happen in Calabria?

    Here’s to a fun-filled 2011! πŸ™‚


    I’ve heard of that in Naples, but I’ve never seen it done here…hope 2011 treats you well too!
