"In November we open the jam."
Translation:A novembre apriamo la marmellata.
I hope we finish by December, because if I remember correctly, we'll be drinking their beer then.
"It's a big event. Everyone comes to the yearly family jam opening."
'In' and 'A' are both acceptable, however A would be more appropriate in this situation.
Marmellata and salsiccia in one month? No one can live at that speed!
Ad is only used instead of a if the first letter of the following word is a vowel
Because nel is a contraction of two italian words; namely, 'in + il' which is 'in + the'.
So 'nel novembre' means 'in the november' - this does not make sense in english or italian.
