Buon Natale and Merry Christmas to all. This collection of Italian Christmas ornaments includes some exquisite decorations for all and some that proudly proclaim our Italian heritage.
Let's not forget La Befana this time of year. She's the old woman who was too busy with housework to go with the three wise men to follow the star. She regretted her refusal later so she gathered her broom and a bag of toys and set out to find the newborn child. Some say she never found him. She still travels about leaving toys for good children and lumps of coal (hard candy) for the bad.
