The season of Epiphany (Epifania) has begun as the Twelve Days of Christmas have ended. Italians celebrate this religious holiday through the Befana an old witch-like woman who brings either coal or sweets to children (depending on whether the child has been good or naughty!).

My Christmas Poinsettia, a gift from a friend, continues to bloom beautifully, bringing a burst of colour to recent grey days.
