‘I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year’
~ Charles Dickens
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.
