My La Befana Miniature Doll for 2012 now on eBay !

La Befana

According to Italian legend, La Befana was a witch living at the time of the birth of Jesus. The three wise men  were on their way to Bethlehem, when they invited La Befana to come along. She was busy with her housework and declined. Later, once she had finished her cleaning, she set off on her broomstick with toys for the Gesú Bambino (Baby Jesus). However, she could not find the Three Kings and soon lost her way. Italian children believe that La Befana is still looking for Baby Jesus, and on the eve of the Epiphany(January 6th), she flies down the chimney of each house, and leaves gifts in the children’s shoes or Stockings  which are left by the fireplace.
