The "Befana", the old witch, arrives in Canazei

The old and nice witch "Befana" comes to town with presents for all the children

As is tradition, Epiphany is celebrated in Val di Fassa with the passage of the Three Kings and the "Befana" (old and nice woman) concluding the magic period of Christmas. At 5.00 p.m. in the square in Canazei the "Befana", the old woman with a hooked nose and a keen chin, wearing rags and covered with soot, flying on a worn-out broom. The children who behaved themselves will receive many small presents, while the naughtier ones will have to settle for some charcoal, but sweet in turn.
