Throughout Italy, friends and family gather together on Christmas Eve to celebrate “La Vigilia.” The vigil is rooted in the Middle Ages when meat was a luxury from which people abstained on holy days. On Christmas Eve, they fasted or ate a simple meal of fish and vegetables. Although the exact translation is left to the individual, the seven dishes are thought by many to represent the Seven Sacraments.
Other families serve eleven dishes (representing the Twelve Apostles minus Judas), or even thirteen dishes (representing the Twelve Apostles plus Jesus).
