HAPPY EPIPHANY DAY IN ROME 6TH JAN. 2012



























During the Christmas festivities Rome is famous for more than Christmas mass and the many churches scattered throughout the capital but also the 2011 Epiphany holiday.
La Befana is a friendly old lady who every year makes youngsters around the world happy by bringing them sweets, chocolates and candy on the night of January 6th in Rome. She is especially loved in Rome.

Piazza Navona is the center of the celebrations and the place to be if you want to discover this unique holiday. Every year the Befana shows up among the many stands of the Christmas market to dispense goodies to children and to pose with them in souvenir photographs.

On the evening of the 6th a straw figure of the Befana is burned as a symbol of the closing of the holiday season and according to the proverb “Epiphany takes with it all the festivals…”

All pictures have been taken at the rally in Rome today morning 6th January 2012.
