The epiphany

The six January we celebrated the Epiphany. This day ends the Christmas period. According to the Catholic religion Epiphany recalls the arrival of the Three Wise Men to the Child Jesus. This is a special holiday for children. Indeed we imagine the Befana as an ancient Santa Claus-like figure whose name means "giver of gifts" and appears as a friendly old witch who rides through the air on a broomstick, dropping through chimneys to fill up with stockings toys and candy. All we use to write a letter to Befana to ask for gifts. However Befana is a bit like our court. In fact, she brings sweets and toys to children during the year were good and ash and coal to bads. So in the morning of Epiphany we never know what we will find in our sock and the night before we are all a little worried.

The Scottish Brownie

Good-natured, invisible brown elves or household goblins who live in farmhouses and other country dwellings in Scotland. While people are asleep, they perform their labors for them. They are known to be protective creatures and they become attached to a certain place of family. Even if the family should move to another continent, the brownies will accompany them in their migration. If offered payment for their services or if they are treated badly, they disappear and are never seen again.
The little hairy brownies, with their flat faces and pinhole nostrils, are not very attractive, but their happy smiles and extrovert characters makes up for that. The innocent nature of children allows them to see the brownies, but disbelieving adults will never get a glimpse of them. This however does not prevent the brownies from helping adults in countless minor ways.
