It is the Christmas eve dinner of The Feast of the 7 Fishes,
Its base is rooted in Southern Italy,known for its seafood and richness of culture ,but empty pockets. Many holiday dinners are "meatless" or non meat focused .
The roots are based in Roman Catholicism. There are a few theories about the number of 7 being based the 7 sacraments,some say 7 virtues and some believe it is the 7th day that God rested.
