Traditions of Italian Christmas




After two years of this successful event, the Federation of Italian-American Organizations will host its third annual Christmas Dinner on Friday, December 16th at Favazza’s Rose of the Hill. This evening again promises to be a memorable occasion and will include a very special menu that highlights Italian culinary traditions and Christmas specialties. Entertainment will include performances by Kathryn Favazza, Paul Higdon and, of course, La Befana.

The Federation of Italian-American Organizations is a board that consists of members representing the majority of Italian-American clubs and organizations in St. Louis. Our vision is to preserve and promote our shared cultural heritage. We do this through the work of our member clubs and organizations as well as through activities that we administer. While the Hill remains the center of Italian-American life in St. Louis, descendants of Italian immigrants live throughout the metro area. As St. Louis Italian-Americans become more dispersed, one of our goals is promote collaboration among the various Italian-American entities. It is our desire to interact with one another, collectively pass on our traditions to future generations, and develop a stronger identity in our community through opportunities to share and celebrate our culture.

We all come from a shared cultural heritage. We invite you, a member of a St. Louis Italian-American organization, to help us bring in the holidays while making new friends in our community.  Feel free to invite friends and relatives.
