Buona Festa dell'Epifania! Happy Epiphany!

Today is the day of the BEFANA. La Befana is an old woman who  comes on the eve of the Epiphany (6th January) and brings gifts to children ... and adults...candy and toys to children who have been good and charcoal to those who have been naughty. 

Here are some pictures of  La Befana Day, including stockings filled with lots of chocolates.

Baby, it's cold outside....

A new if I don't have enough.

Who doesn't love Kinder?


  1. Francesca, I'd never heard of this holiday...the day of the Befana or La Befana. If retailers here in the USA get wind of it, they'll turn it into yet another gift selling holiday! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  2. So has winter arrived on Sicily? Your previous posts were all about sunny weather, feeling summery.
    I love Tartan, and you wear it so well with the colour mix of trousers and scarf!

  3. I also bough one of those kinder stockings! it's adorable and filled with yummy kinder goodies!

  5. I have known of La Befana for years although have never celebrated it. What a nice thing to do to celebrate. I hope you enjoyed your stockings.
