It's not a main holiday, but many Italian-Americans would have celebrations, festivals, and real good Italian food at these Assumption Festivals.

I love going to the Assumption Festival in Cleveland's Little Italy. I just wanna go and eat the foods there...this year I had deep-fried spaghetti which was good, gnocchi alla vodka and I can't leave without having cannoli. I was tempted to have frog-legs and octopus...how good is frog-legs and octopus?

I heard it originally came from the day called Ferragosto, which is celebrated on August 15th in Italy...now many Italians worldwide celebrate it as Mary going into Heaven...just a little background of the story, but no matter...I want to play some good Italian-American songs like this gem from Goodfellas...



Happy Assumption Day, or for the Italians on this site...

I love Italian food so I'm sad I missed it. :( Goodfellas is definitely a classic though. :)
