La Befana’s role has been as a gift-giving figure, traditionally their version of Santa. On the evening of January 5th, she rides around on her broomstick to visit the children leaving gifts for those who have been good and coal to those who have been naughty. In Florence, La Befana is celebrated by a huge parade on the morning of January 6th, the Cavalcade of Three Kings.
