POST.GAZETTE, DECEMBER 5, -2014 Texas Giarratani Family Comes Home for Thanksgiving by Sal Giarratani Page7 Buon Natale: Creches of Italy The Giarratani family of Austin -- The kiddos: Helen, DJ (aka Dominic IV) and baby Victoria with Shafeeqa and Dominic IH gathered for this family portrait. Dominic HI with Uncle Sal. The Texas Swing of the Giarratani family was home in Roslindale for Thanksgiving at my niece Danikka's home. My nephew Dominic brought the whole family to Bos- ton and while here, his kids got to ride the subway, visit the New England Aquarium and check out things at the Museum of Sci- ence. The kids also got to see a little snow, something they rarely see in Austin. Lucky them, huh? I was last down there in late July and I am already homesick for my home away from home where the politicians all think like me as opposed to all the crazy liberal- ism up here. I am a Red voter suffering in a Blue state where I feel we get too much white as in snow too. * ['Anno Bello (Continued from Page 4) The image of Santa Clau  arrive, small hOlidays like has become extremely com- mercialized, but we should not forget the true meaning of this unique Christmas figure. He has roots in an- tiquity and honors the traits of kindness and compas- sion.. His feast day cel- ebrates children and the sort of unbridled joy and gen- erosity that the holiday sea- son bestows upon those who take time to heed its mes- sage. While many of us wait impatiently for Christmas to St. Nicholas's Day remind us that the whole Advent sea- son is full of distinctive and special opportunities to com- memorate every facet of the holidays. This Christmas season, let us all encompass the same sort of happiness and wonder that Santa Claus, or Father Christmas, or Babbo Natale, inspired in us as children. After all, there is a whole month of magic, fun and kindness to exploreT Quattro Grille, Rosticcedo & Pizzeda ooo 266 Hanover St. * 617.720.0444 Bricco Boutique Italian Cuisine 000 241 Hanover St. 617.248.6800 Mar Seafood & Oyster Bar 000 135 Richmond St. - 617.723.MARE Trattoria II Panino Boston's 1st Original Trafforia OOO 11 Parmenter St. o 617.729.1336 Umbria Prime 5 Story Steakhouse : Oyster Bar & Night Club o00 295 Franklin St:. 617.338.1000 Bricco Panefleria Homemade Artisan Breads 000 Bdcco Place 24 !

The Knights of Columbus Museum's 10  annual Christ- mas cr6che exhibition, Buon Natale: Creches of Italy fea- tures two dozen Italian inspired Nativity scenes on display. The highlight of the show is a 120-square-foot Neapolitan diorama. Creches have been a popular part of Western Christianity for more than 800 years. Introduced in Italy by St. Francis of Assisi, they served as a way for everyday people to reflect on Jesus' modest birth. Through the centuries, creches have developed into large and ornate displays in communities as well as humble presentations for homes. Perhaps the most recognizable and popular style is the Neapolitan creche. These Nativity scenes placed the Holy Family not in the stable setting of Bethlehem but in the heart of 16-century Naples. These elegant and elaborate scenes feature the Child Jesus in the midst not only of adoring cherubs and shepherds, but also among ladies and gentlemen of nobility, merchants, musicians and various commoners; literally among the active daily life of the community. Buon Natale: Creches of Italy is on view now through February i, 2015. The Knights of Columbus Museum extends gratitude to the following lenders: Bottega D'Arte Presepiale Cantone & Costabile, Naples; the Marian Library at the University of Dayton; Antonio Caruso; Karen Loccisano and R. Michael Palan. The museum's 14 th annual Christmas Tree Festival, fea- turing 24 trees decorated with handmade ornaments and trim by Connecticut schoolchildren, opens with a celebra- tion December 6, 2014. A Christmastime Family Day is scheduled for December 28, 2014 and a wood carving demonstration by lending artist Antonio Caruso is planned for January 10, 2015. The Knights of Columbus Museum is located at One State Street, New Havenl CT.
