Italian Carols and Christmas Songs – feel free to listen to Italian Christmas Music.Holidays in Italy are different than in the rest of European countries – although most of the church ceremony is very close to the Catholic celebrations across Europe. I spent a year in Sicily and I was also there during the Christmas season, from what I noticed is the Italians very rarely decorate the Christmas tree (at least in the south) – in my flat I had a palm festooned with many lights and decorations. Italian Christmas menu is very specific, eats up a lot of very sweet cakes and desserts. I also tried very exquisite Sicilian dish, festive pasta with seafood and eggplant.
If we are talking about Christmas songs and carols in Italy we mainly hear them on television or in advertisements, but the Italians do not sing them together on Christmas Eve. Very often, Christmas songs appear in stores, at fairs – in order to attract customers.

In Italy, there is no Christmas carols in the sense, as in Poland, Sweden and the Czech Republic. There exist rather Christmas songs, something like the ubiquitous “Last Christmas”. And often they are simply translating English songs to Italian.

In Italy, people do not sing carols, just translated from English songs and church music 🙂
