La Befana: An Italian Night After Christmas

La Befana: An Italian Night After Christmas

A poetic adaptation of the tradition of La Befana, and the Italian Epiphany celebration. La Befana is an old woman who hears of the birth of Christ from several visitors who knock on her door late at night looking for supplies and directions to the new "child king". She sends them away, preferring to be left to her cleaning, but then she sees the star in the heavens and has a change of heart. It starts her on a quest and she begins delivering gifts to the children she passes as she searches for the Christ child.

De Carlini Glass Ornament - Befana - Italian Ornament

De Carlini Glass Ornament - Befana - Italian Ornament

January 6 is a national holiday in Italy when the feast of Epiphany is celebrated and the tradition of La Befana is a big part of their Christmas celebrations. Epiphany commemorates the 12th day of Christmas when the three Wise Men arrived at the manger bearing gifts for Baby Jesus. La Befana has been an Italian tradition since the XIII century and comes from Christian legend rather than pop culture. As legend has it, La Befana, a witch-like woman riding on a broom, refused to join the Wise Men on their journey to see the baby Jesus. When she regrets her decision, she sets out to bring gifts to the Child but never finds him. Instead, she leaves gifts for other children. Italian children leave out their shoes or put up stockings for the Befana to fill on January 5th, Epiphany Eve. Soffieria De Carlini was started in 1947 making inventive and imaginative glass Christmas ornaments. Post war Italy needed their spirits lifted and these ornaments did just that with their magical imagery. Each ornament is, as it was then, exclusively made in Italy, blown and hand-decorated, and transmits the poetry of an unchanged art. Their glass ornaments are recognizable worldwide for their distinctive style. They have been imitated but they are never equaled. We trust you will enjoy them on your Ch...
