Celebrate Ferragosta on August 15!

"Ferragosto holiday and leisure time: Ferragosto is an Italian holiday celebrated on August 15. Originally, it may have related to a celebration of the middle of the summer and the end of the hard labor in the fields The present Italian name of the holiday derives from its original Latin name, Feriae Augusti ("Festivals of the Emperor Augustus). In the past it was common that businesses closed, and the entire month of August was taken as a holiday and leisure time in Italy in honor of this feast day. In present days, Ferragosto is mainly a short holiday when Italians take brief vacations at the beach and enjoy big meals. People celebrate on the streets in many cities of Italy."
