Sorry folks but it looks like I missed Columbus Day, Thanksgiving Day (we celebrate Thanksgiving in October in Canada), Halloween, and Italian American Heritage Month as well as half of November due to some personal health issues but I really did start writing this on 10 Oct. I can’t actually write about up and coming events because they have already come and gone but instead of dwelling on what was, lets look at what is.
October is often referred to Italian Heritage or Italian American Heritage Month in several parts of the US although it’s not recognized at all in Canada in spite of the high Italian population that cities such as Toronto and Montreal enjoy. A few years ago I found a wonderful website devoted almost exclusively to this topic. Thirty-One Days of Italians covers several categories, all of which promote Italian American Heritage. Certain areas of the site are under construction as new categories like The History of Italian Immigrants are being worked on but there’s quite a bit of interesting information on it already. Definitely a site to keep an eye out on.
