I love studying the Italian language. It is so descriptive, like the Italian word for snowflake “fiocco di neve” meaning ribbon of snow. It kind of takes the edge off last night’s forecast for 3- 5 inches when you picture snow following in ribbons of white rather than something to shovel.
That got me thinking about Italian words pertaining to winter so I decided to review my winter vocabulary and then mi metto la mia sciarpa e vado a fuori giocare nelle neve allora vengo indietro per un tazzo di cioccolato caldo*
* Oh no my Italian teacher is sure to find mistakes while my cousins in Italy smile as I continue my unending quest to learn Italian.
