Colors are the smiles of nature. Cinquette is a very happy place that is sure to make everyone that passes through leave filled with joy and positive energy! In honor of National Crayon Day (March 31st), check out these 10 facts about secret ingredients, fine art, and how to plan your next vacation around the world’s biggest crayon.

Did you know the smell of crayola crayons is from the ingredient, beef fat, which deliveries  the waxy consistency? Luckily here in Cinquette you can experience a vibrant colorful scene without the smell!

One of their employees was slightly color blind while molding 1.4 billion crayons for the company before retiring!

In 1994 Crayola released a line of food-scented crayons but it was quickly recalled due to parents concerns about children ingesting them. With that being said we also must inform you not to eat the buildings,umbrellas, or boats in this town!

Crayola produces an average of 12 million crayons daily! This is enough to circle the world six times, some just melted due to heat all over this special town!

In 2002 Crayola created the Crayola Crayon Maker, so children could create new crayons from their used “misfit” crayon nubs. It was in the style of an Easy-Bake Oven. Here the small nubs of crayon were just left around for beach and restaurant goers to have a place to sit!

In 1903 the company made the first box that was sold door to door only costing a nickel and contained eight colors!

In October 2003, the Experience unveiled “The World’s Largest Crayon,” a 15-foot-long crayon weighing 1,500 lb as part of its celebration of 100 years of Crayola crayons.

Several beauty bloggers had encouraged crayons as a cheap alternative to expensive make-up. The company had to start a campaign to the general public that they were never tested to be used on skin. All jokes aside Cinquette used PAINT not CRAYON to decorate their town!

One of the most spiritual experiences in the world is experiencing the beauty and splendor of a Vatican Christmas Mass in Italy. Christmas in Rome is a fairy tale come true. Adding a Christmas service at the Vatican into the itinerary will take your trip over the top. A Christmas Mass is one of the few times that visitors to Vatican City are guaranteed to see the Pope. The magic of the service is represented by the peace and unity that it signifies to people all over the globe as they celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

How to get tickets to the Vatican Christmas Mass

As the most watched Christmas Mass in the globe, this special Christmas celebration must be planned out in advance. This guide is designed to help you understand how to see the Vatican Christmas Mass. Approximately 15,000 people will be on hand in the stunning St. Peter’s Basilica. This massive cathedral provides a majestic backdrop for the moving service. Contrary to the implied timing of the event, the “midnight” mass actually begins at 9:30 pm. Although the mass is open to the public and the tickets are free, admission must be procured well in advance.
The Vatican advises interested parties to apply for the tickets at least 2-6 months in advance. Requests for tickets must be faxed to +39 06 698 85863. The Vatican will then mail you an official confirmation of receipt of the fax request. After that, you wait to see if you are one of the lucky ones to receive tickets when you arrive in Rome. Approximately 3-5 days before the mass, you will need to go to the Prefettura Vaticana office, located just to the right of the cathedral, to see if your request was approved.

Watch Christmas Eve Mass in St Peter’s Square

If you were not chosen to attend the Christmas Eve Mass in St Peter’s Basilica, there are still more options to catch one of these events. On Christmas Eve, you can join the throng of visitors outside in St. Peter’s Square to watch the service on live television screens. There is also a Christmas Day Mass in St. Peter’s Square that happens at noon which is open to the public and does not require tickets. Known as the Urbi et Orbi, this mass is a highlight of the Christmas season for many. The square will fill up quickly so it is recommended to arrive well in advance in order to secure the best viewing spot.

Other Times to see The Pope

Because of the busy holiday season and the high demand, it can be challenging to catch an official Vatican Christmas Mass. Fortunately, there are many other ways in which you can catch the Pope. On nearly every Sunday and Wednesday as he delivers his Papal Audience, the Pope addresses the crowd with a themed speech and blessings. The admission is free but tickets are needed. Even if you are not a practicing Catholic, seeing the Pope live at Vatican City is an experience that you will not soon forget.

Christmas in Italy is an especially magical time, focused on the spirituality of the season and the opportunity to spend time connecting with friends and family in celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. Unlike Christmas in America, the Italian holiday season is not as commercialized. The days around Christmas are spent going to church to worship, spending time with beloved family, and indulging in rich Italian feasts. The il Pranzo is a traditional Christmas lunch, highlighting the festivities of this time of year in Italy. As a key element of the season, the traditional Italian Christmas dishes play a central role in all of the gatherings.
Roasted Lamb and Potatoes | The Lazio Region
The Lazio region of Italy is known for its traditional dish of roasted lamb served with potatoes. Encompassing Rome and its environs, this region is known for rich and hearty dishes. The classic Christmas roast is revered for its simplicity and comforting taste of home at the holidays.
Zampone | The Emilia Romagna Region
Hailing from the Northern Italy region of Emilia Romagna, zampone is a staple of the Christmas celebration. Prepared from the leg of a pig with the foot still attached, zampone is considered to be a delicacy and reserved for special occasions such as this. Zampone is usually served alongside the Italian pork sausage cotechino as well as lentils as a complementary side dish.
Chicken Liver Pate | Tuscany
Originating in the central Tuscany region, chicken liver pate is a staple of the holiday season. Making an ideal starter, this Tuscan dish is one of the most popular items on the Christmas lunch table as it is served atop a crisp crostini. A sprinkling of pine nuts on top of the pate gives it a nice crunch and visual appeal. The chicken liver pate is best enjoyed with a rich glass of Chianti.
Tortellini and broth | Bologna
Capon broth with meat-filled tortellini is a defining Christmas dish of the Bologna area of Italy. A capon is a rooster that has been fattened for its rich and flavorful taste profiles. The exquisite broth is steeped with delicate meat-filled tortellini to create one of the most comforting and warm Italian Christmas dishes.
Bacccala | Basilicata, Southern Italy
Crispy cod with fried peppers is a classic Christmas dish hailing from the Basilicata region in Southern Italy. Also known as Baccala, this dish is usually served on Christmas Eve. The salted and dried cod can be served as both an appetizer or a main dish. Prior to preparation, the cod is soaked in fresh water for at least 48 hours, changing the water approximately every eight hours.

Typically, pizza is a dish that most vegans would steer away from due to the presence of dairy. However, originating from the Napoli region in the 1700’s, pizza marinara is an excellent vegan-friendly way to enjoy one of Italy’s most famous dishes! Below is a  simple recipe for Vegans to enjoy this taste of Italy from the comfort of their own home.

Pizza Pomodoro (Marinara)

Makes: 10-12 in. pizza

Prep Time: 35 mins

Cook Time: 55 mins total

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ lb of plum ripe tomatoes or 28 ounce can of peeled ripe tomatoes
  • Approximately 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil (you may need more for drizzling as well)
  • Finely sliced garlic and dried oregano (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon of fine sea salt
  • One ball of pizza dough

Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 500°F
  2. For those using fresh tomatoes: Bring about 4 quarts of water to a boil. Remove stem from the tomatoes, and place them in the water for approximately 15 seconds. Remove them and let cool. Proceed to peel the tomatoes. If you are using canned tomatoes, go directly to steps 3 and 4

  3. If you own a food mill: Cut each tomato into wedges and run them through the food mill over a medium-sized bowl. If you do not own a food mill, squish the tomatoes with your hands in a medium-sized bowl (a messy but fun way to make the sauce!)

  4.  Shape the pizza dough, and place it on a floured counter

It should come as no surprise that the capital of Roman Catholicism is one of Europe’s most festive Christmastime cities. As you walk through Rome’s storied streets, you’re bound to come across festive manger scenes, dazzling light displays, and, of course, towering Christmas trees. In addition to enjoying the Christmastime sights, be sure to treat your taste buds to a tasty Christmas dinner in Rome. Whether you want to enjoy an authentic Roman seafood feast or an American turkey dinner, Rome Christmas restaurants will satisfy your holiday hunger.

Rome’s Luxury Hotels

Some of the best places to explore Rome’s holiday festivities are the city’s magnificent luxury hotels. Two 5-star hotels that are particularly noted for their holiday decorations & specialty menus include the Hassler Hotel by the Spanish Steps and the Hotel de Russie near the Piazza del Popolo. Both of these high-end hotels have fabulous restaurants offering special holiday menus on Christmas Eve, Christmas, and New Year’s. the Hassler Hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant Imàgo is lauded for its panoramic views of Rome as well as its traditional offerings like lentils soup, eel & green apple risotto, and cod with smoked potatoes. At the Hotel de Russie you’ll find the outdoor Le Jardin de Russie which offers holiday plates like cauliflower scallops with a white truffle sauce, seabass with a side of artichokes and mashed potatoes, and pumpkin ravioli.

Local Italian Restaurants

As you might’ve already guessed after reading through these dishes, fish is a big deal in Roman cuisine. Traditionally, Romans eat seafood plates on Christmas Eve and Christmas day, and eel is a holiday delicacy. One great place to experience an authentic local Christmas dinner in Rome is at a place called Restaurant Tema. Located close to the Basilica Papale di Santa Maria Maggiore, Restaurant Tema has a cozy atmosphere and a high reputation for its seafood selection. For those not into fishy flavors, Restaurant Tema also has many wonderful meat selections on their menu.

Modern Christmas Dinner

People looking for a more modern & experimental Christmas dinner, consider visiting Ristorante Moma close to the iconic Via Veneto. This Michelin-starred restaurant offers special menus on the holidays that fuse traditional Roman cooking with modern cuisine. A few items you might find on your visit to Ristorante Moma include spaghetti & mullet with cauliflower, veal with black cabbage, and grilled octopus. By the way, if you’re only interested in American fare, then you could check out what’s happening at the Hard Rock Café Roma, which is just a short walk from Ristorante Moma.

Bistro Christmas Dinner

Lastly, anyone interested in a succulent dinner sampling should visit Marzapane Roma on Christmas Eve, Christmas, or New Year’s Eve. Founded in 2013, Marzapane Roma is considered an experimental bistro that fuses many flavors from Italian cuisine. A few courses you might find on Marzapane Roma’s specialty menu include chickpeas ravioli, squid with carrots, and fowl with mushrooms.

Visiting Rome during Christmastime is a fantastic way to spend your holiday season. Not only will you enjoy Christmas displays and celebrations in Rome and Vatican City, you’ll also have the opportunity to savor the flavors of the season. As you could see from the list above, many Rome Christmas restaurants offer special regional cuisine options you won’t find anywhere else. Eating an authentic Italian meal in the Eternal City is one holiday experience you’ll never forget.
