24 December - U Pan de Natale in Monaco
The tradition is at risk of extinction, and attempts are being made to revive it by the Monaco Committee on Traditions with the assistance of Monégasque bakeries. U Pan de Natale is a very old Monegasque tradition that the Traditions Committee wanted to restore to the spotlight by involving, as in ancient times, all the families of the country.
U Pan de Natale, according to the tradition, are blessed by the families but also during the midnight mass in the Cathedral, on Christmas Eve. At the end of the mass, during the Offertory, the Archbishop of Monaco proceeds to the symbolic blessing of all the breads that will be on the family tables that evening or the next day at Christmas dinner.
