My dear Love, if you only knew how much I miss you
It’s time to deck the halls! Dust off the tinsel, get out the wreaths, and mail in your letters to Santa. The magic of Christmas is just around the corner. But what happens after you’ve eaten the last piece of baccalà, your most stretchy elastic-waistband pants are snug, and the man in the red and white suit has come and gone? How many Italo-Canadians still anxiously await another gift-bearing visitor in January? She’s known as La Befana. She visits children in Italy on the eve of the epiphany. And she also stops by Sabrina Di Matteo’s house in Laval every year.
