January 6th: W La Befana!

“The old good witch who brings candies and coal to the Italian children. Its origin and multifarious celebrations”. (from www.i-Italy.org)

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

In English:
«The Befana comes by night
With her shoes all tattered and torn
She comes dressed in the Roman way
Long life to the Befana!»
befana
