This is the kind of money that they use in Europe. I wish I had 500 euros(around 532 dollars to us).

Christmas in Italy

In Italy they celebrate the birth of Jesus. Cribs are traditionally put out on the 8th of December but the figure of baby Jesus isn't put out till the 24th. on Christmas eve it's common that no meat and sometimes no dairy is served. Often it's a light seafood meal ( Baccala (salted Cod), Clams, Calamari, Sardines and Eel) before they go to the midnight mass service. When they return they might have a slice of Italian Christmas cake called 'Panettone' which is like a dry fruity sponge cake and they might have some hot chocolate(gotten from http://whychristmas.com/cultures/italy.shtml).
