The "Befanata" 2018

True to Italian folk tradition, the "Befana" came to visit visiting children on our lake today, arriving by boat. She brought candy-filled stockings to those awaiting her, despite some fears that she would be bringing them coal. In Italy in fact the legend of Santa Claus and stockings and coal is tied to this pagan folk figure and not Christmas, arriving on Epiphany Day the 6th of January...further confusing the line between church and folk traditions!
