Loved the new show and watch anything with Lidia!! Would like to know the lyrics of the Italian song sung at Lidia's table on Christmas eve. Lidia's mom led the song. If possible, please provide lyrics and name of song and what region of Italy the song is from.

Always a fan of Lidia's but this special tops my list! If only I could have dinner with her?

I enjoyed the show "Lydia Celebrates America" very much. I'd like to see it repeated again.
