Putting up Christmas!

The holidays are here! This week my friend Natalie came into town the begining of the week and we headed to IKEA and bought Christmas! Well, okay the Tree and all the decorations!!! not only that but all for under $30!!!
I made these stockings to add to our decor when Giovanni came home and saw them he asked if they were for La Buffana... now this is a bizarre holiday that is based on the Epiphany (Jan 6) as explained by Zeno our friend the poor farmers could not pronounce it and so they called it the LA Buffana. She is a witch that brings goodies to the good and coal to the bad. Rebekah will remember the night in Rome in a square PACKED full of people waiting for a glimpes of her! Oh how Italians love their holidays!
I need to take and post some pictures of the beauty of the city dressed up for the season! It is pretty grande! I will have more to post later!
