The Feast of the Seven Fishes Image

The Feast of the Seven Fishes

by StarKist

Food is a central part of most holidays and for many Italian Americans the Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve is no exception.  No one really knows when this tradition started, but the fish dinner on Christmas Eve is celebrated in many Southern Italian families as well as many Italian American families.   The number of fish dishes vary according to family tradition and the region of the country they are from.  The reason for fish is that Christmas Eve used to be a day of fasting, just like Good Friday and no meat was eaten.  The reason for the seven fish dishes also varies according to the family.  Some say it is because of the seven sacraments, or the seven hills in Rome, the seven days of the week, or the seven days it took God to create the universe. 

Perfect after a long day at the beach!
