La Befana!

4 Jan

La Befana!

Santa has come and gone, but we are awaiting the arrival of La Befana!

Hang your socks by the fire on January 5th and celebrate the Epiphany with the arrival of La Befana! Traditional treats include an orange, a fig, some chocolates and some coins!

La Befana vien di notte
Con le scarpe tutte rotte
Col vestito alla romana
Viva, Viva La Befana!

Enjoy!

    Thanks for sharing Lauren. I love learning new things. Is this an Italian tradition? Is it a regional thing? I have never heard my Italian husband or his family speak of it.

    My pleasure! Yes, an Italian tradition. Mainly celebrated in central Italy! Xox
