In Italy, tombola is a very common family game played at Christmas, similar to bingo, the English version so popular in the United States, United Kingdom, and under many forms, all around the world.
In Italy on Christmas Eve, playing tombola is a must, with all the relatives united around grandparents and small children shouting when they win a prize (adults usually don't call a prize if there are children around, to let them win).
Unfortunately, to keep our community safe and healthy, we have cancelled our usual Christmas tombola game for 2020.
Hopefully, we will be able to enjoy the game again in December 2021!
