Buona Befana!

"La Befana vien di notte,
con le scarpe tutte rotte.
E la vesta alla romana,
Viva, Viva La Befana!"

The Befana stopped by our house tonight and dropped off a small gift each for the girls. An Italian tradition I had in my family growing up and now passing onto my girls. Growing up we were always excited about the coming of the Befana because we knew it meant one more gift after Christmas. As I got older, I knew it wasn't so much about the gift but rather the story that was and is special. Hopefully as the girls grow they can remember the story of the Epiphany and it become special to them as well.

Buona Notte!
