Buona Befana!

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

I love celebrating the feast of the Epiphany with the kids just as I remember enjoying it as a kid with my own family growing up. On the eve of Epiphany, last night, the Befana visits all the girls and boys in search of baby Jesus. She leaves a small gift for them and continues her search. 

This is one of my favorite books to read to the girls this time of year especially.  Tells the sweet tale of Strega Nona going off in search of the Christ Child.

Buona Befana to you all! Hope she left you something sweet!!!
