I am a Heinz 57 blend of most European nationalities. Then I was married to a guy who was 100% Italian for 5 years. I think I have experienced or witnessed at least 38 of these. In fact, when my mother died, I got willed her wooden spoons. Seriously.

Cute post, Kudos!

poppy was always interested in the newspaper to check his "numbas"

wine came in those wicker bottomed bottles and was never kept in the "Frigidair"

at family dinners the kids always used the folding card table

bad news always meant a index finger knuckle would be chewed

The ladies had "stoles" which were fur animal scarfs
Cotton gym socks were not in any of poppy's dresser drawers (always black nylon)
In school the nuns would have a knuckle fetish if you asked anything they could not answer.
A good way to see up a girl's plaid skirt in school was to look in the reflection of her black patent leather shoes.
You could always tell how much fun your older brother or sister had on Friday night date by the number of Hail Marys they had to say on Saturday at confession.
They was always an uncle that could get anything you wanted because he knew "people"
If you were an alterboy you always had to keep one eye on the priest and one on your rosaries.
You learned how to count playing BINGO
Marie was the name of at least 6 of your relatives.
Catholic girls thought it was a sin to have sex but could suck you faster than spaghetti.
All prayers in latin or English were preceeded by touching your forehead, your belly, and then both tits.
Communion wafers always tasted stale, but would melt in your mouth.
