Italian sayings and proverbs are just a tad bit “cuter” to me than American sayings.
I don’t know why …
I love America, and, believe me, I LOVE speaking English. To be entirely honest, I think the reason I enjoy these sayings so much is because I. finally. understand. them!
Oh, you remember Pazzo Marzo, right? That is cute.
And, then there is
Trovare un amico e’ cosi raro
Come un di’ senza vento a Catanzaro
Which means, it’s as hard to find a true friend, as it is to find a day without wind in Catanzaro (which I can confirm to be true!)
But, my new favorite is this!
Rosso di sera
Bel tempo si spera …
Rosso di mattina
La pioggia si avvicina …
Do you understand?
You know how sometimes when the sun is breaking, either early in the morning, or in the evening, and the sky emits an amazing shade of pink, kinda like this?
Well, that is what this Italian proverb is all about.
When there are pink skies in the evening, good weather is on the way, but when there is pink in the mornin’, the rain is a comin’.
Ok, so maybe it isn’t really “a comin’,” but you get the idea?
A few nights ago, I walked out on our balcony to see this …
A sign of good things to come!
And, it has to be true. The Italians said so!
Happy Love Thursday!
