St. Nicholas and Santa Claus (St. Claus??) are two separate and distinct characters--one real, the other a coke head.

Last time I checked, capello meant 'hair' in Italian.

When in Rome I suppose, lol.

I have heard that years ago, one could present the pope with a white zucchetto in exchange for the one he was wearing. That would be a pretty cool souvenir.

Another weird Italian name for a piece of clerical headdress: zucca is "pumpkin", zucchetto - "little pumpkin".

So wearing one of those makes one a ... pumpkinhead. Huh

Maybe that's how Italians view their clergy.

Or, maybe that's how Romanians view Italian clergy.  A zucchetto is essentially the same as a kippah (yarmulke).

More over I want to know why some Jews use kippah it seems as a statement rather than yarmulke. It makes no sense to me if kippah is indeed a Yiddish rendering.

Everyone I grew up around said yarmulke without the weird American pronunciation. J Michael just reminded me of this thing that niggles me at times and I lack the resources and time right now to find out.

IOW, curious and lazy.

Thanks, but I would like for something more complete. If it comes from Hebrew that would explain the political undertone of its use, I am interested when it became standard to use it for the hat. IOW, would a 18th century Ashkenazi Jew have said yarmulke rather than kippah primarily.

Der liebe Gott wohnt im Detail: the kippa has no pumpkin tail or stripes on it.





I suppose it could, though.  There is an almost infinite variety of kippah designs.

yarmulke (n.) Look up yarmulke at Dictionary.com
    1903, from Yiddish yarmulke, from Polish jarmułka, originally "a skullcap worn by priests," perhaps ultimately from Medieval Latin almutia "cowl, hood."

Non snap-back hats look weird on anyone that isn't a hipster or 40+ years old, and that's the honest truth.

In the Hebrew Bible, kippa means "palm leaf" (Is. 9:13; 19:15).

According to the Brown-Driver-Briggs lexicon, it comes from the root כָּפַף - "to bend, be bent/bowed or hollow" and is related to kaf ("hollow" or "flat of the hand, palm, sole of foot or pan").

You really are a veritable wealth of information!  Thanks for that!
