St Joseph's Day 2014

Wednesday, March 19th is Saint Joseph's Day, when Sicilians celebrate with cream-filled sfinci.

While this seems to be a rather popular "ethnic" holiday among Italian descendants abroad, it really isn't extremely important here in Italy, at least not anymore. It is not a national holiday - banks and schools will be open. Nothing like Saint Patrick's Day in Ireland, two days earlier.

But still a great reason to indulge in delicious pastry!
