St. Joseph’s Day (March 19) always enthralls me because of the elaborate “tables” that Italian women created in honor of Saint Joseph. In many ways, these “tables” remind me of Mexican Day of the Dead altars.

    I hope you don’t mind, Cindy, I’m going to add your link to the post I did on St. Joseph’s Day. There’s a fish soup recipe you may be curious about.
