“Beware of kisses and hugs with grandchildren, during the Christmas holidays? No problem: a great affection can also be shown with a single, simple caress full of affection and love! “. This is guaranteed by the most famous of Italian grandparents, grandfather Libero or Lino Banfi, commenting to AdnKronos on the recommendation of the CTS to be careful of excessive effusions between grandparents and grandchildren during the day of Christmas, traditionally dedicated to family lunches and the exchange of gifts.
“Speaking like Lino Banfi and not like grandfather Libero – continues the Apulian actor – I am fortunate to have older grandchildren, all vaccinated: therefore, there will be no problem in embracing and wishing each other ‘Merry Christmas!’… hoping that a letter of protest from the European Union does not arrive for the use of this forbidden word“, he concludes with reference to the indications, later withdrawn, of the EU Commission on compliance with ‘equality’ in language.
