HAPPY LA BEFANA DAY! BUONA GIORNATA DELLA BEFANA!


Today we celebrate La Befana....an old woman who comes and brings sweets to children who have been good and charcoal to those who have been naughty.

La Befana is usually portrayed as an old lady wearing a scarf and riding on a broom. This particular Befana does not like to fly...so she goes on foot:)

  6. Francesca, This is a new one for me! Sounds like a nice holiday/custom though... It's like Halloween in reverse. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
