Dec 17, 2012 Talk Radio 1210 WPHT Feast of Seven Fishes


WANNAMAKER’S BUILDING  |  CRYSTAL BALLROOM

MONDAY.  The Crystal Ballroom was packed and alive with people celebrating the tradition of the Seven Fishes meal.  This tradition is really all about family and friends being together eating and breaking bread (there sure was a lot of bread there last night).

By all accounts, the Feast of the Seven Fishes began as a southern Italian custom. The tradition was hugely popular in Italy’s most southern points, including the island of Sicily.

Talk Radio 1210 WPHT-Feast of Seven Fishes Story

Today, families throughout the world celebrate it. No one knows for sure the significance for offering seven fishes, although there are numerous explanations for it. Some believe that seven fishes are served because it took God seven days to create the world, while others mention the Seven Hills of Rome. Today, the number of fishes served varies, although seven remains the historical number.
