St Joseph’s Day: another Lent break

Zeppole on sale in Naples

Today Tuesday 19 March is St Joseph’s Day.

If you live in Italy you will find St Joseph buns, called seppole, on sale. They look like the Shrove Tuesday semlor buns enjoyed in Sweden although this time the cream is ricotta.

Joseph has two feast days. Today as spouse of Mary mother of Jesus and 1 May as St Joseph the Worker.

In some countries today is a holiday and in many more Father’s Day. In Krakow the trams are decorated with flags.
