The Kids, The Festivals and La Befana

Since the holidays have passed (for us in the US) and all those sweets have been consumed, that leaves space and time for dreaming of Italian festivals, which somehow are always related to food in Italy.

This is Ephiphany or Befana, the day the Three Wise Men visited the Baby Jesus. Yes, it’s still holiday season in Italy. Of course, on this day you celebrate by distributing gifts to children…and by eating, of course.

So I leave you with a picture of some kids banging a drum anxiously at the Disfida Festival and Parade in Fivizzano.
