We have a Christmas time tradition on Twelfth Night (give or take) and celebrate the last night of the season. La Befana, the Christmas Witch from Italy comes to give little gifts to the children. We always eat Italian on that night even though we have 0.0 percent Italian on either side of either family. My husband was stationed in the Navy in Naples and he learned about her while living there. I thought she sounded great and she either leaves gifts or comes to the door or comes inside to deliver them every year. We also have fire in the fireplace and roast smores with our circle, tell stories and think about the year to come.
This year she looked a little different like she is maybe more Muslim and also wasn’t getting around very well and it took her a long time to hobble off. 🙂
