Tonight is the Eve of Epiphany so children all over Italy will be expecting a visit from that good witch, the Befana who, it is believed, will leave sweets and chocolates for good children but only pieces of coal for those who have been bad.

The Befana, whose name is probably a corruption of Epifania, sometimes even sweeps the floor before she leaves so she will be very welcome in my house!  I  am, of course, expecting lots of candy - how about you?

Many chocolates from me to you!

Yes, Epiphany. Need to post.

Thank you, WW! Will be over soon, James.

If I eat any more chocolates I will surely burst! However the witch is very welcome to sweep my floor!
