Sicilian Traditions

In a typical Sicilian wedding, the bride makes her entrance with her father who at the altar gives her to the groom who kisses her on the forehead, a typical symbol of love. The bridesmaid brings the rings to the priest who will give them to the bride and groom and they will make their promises. The bride, the groom and the witnesses, after the ceremony, sign on the marriage register of the parish. As they walk out of the church all the guests throw rice to the newlyweds as a token of good wishes and good luck.

On the 19th of March, in Sant'Agata di Militello,  in coincidence with  father's day it's celebrated Saint Giuseppe who is the protector of Sant'Agata.   During the festival there's a procession and in the evening, to have fun, there are stalls, fireworks and some singers to animate the festivity. The Santagatesi are very attached to this saint for that they never fail to celebrate this occasion.

Another typical Sicilian tradition is linked to our music culture. Songs like Vitti 'na crozza, Tarantella Siciliana and Ciuri Ciuri are something we are really prud of.
