"I hate Christmas" Netflix series is set in Chioggia
Throughout our blog, you can find many articles about what to do in Venice at Christmas. We definitely love this time of the year and we love spending it in our amazing city.
However, we truly understand the people that does no like Christmas as much as we do. It's becoming almost a trend due to the stress that the holidays impose.
For this reason, Netflix has decided to propose "I hate Christmas" and to set it in our beautiful Chioggia.
What is "I hate Christmas" about?
The main theme of the new Netflix series is that we don't need a partner to be perfectly happy. However, during the holidays it is not so uncommon for families asking for our sentimental status.
That's precisely what happens, year after year, to the main character of the series, Gianna, interpreted by Pilar Fogliati.
However, instead of being sad or anything, Gianna is very happy and proud of her life and tries to convey her feelings towards her incredulous family. In any case, she has a very challenging task for this Christmas: just 24 days to find the perfect match to be accompanied with on Christmas Eve party.
The series is an adaptation of the Norwegian series "Christmas with a stranger" by Per-Olav Sørensen, which you can also find on Netflix.
We expect the "I hate Christmas" Netflix series to be particularly entertaining because of the many scenes shot all around Chioggia.
You will see that Chioggia and its inhabitants are at least as proud as Gianna!
