Babbo Natale

Here in Italy Santa (or Babbo Natale as he is called) can't always make it down the chimney because not everybody has a fireplace in the busy and crowed Italian city life. So Babbo finds other ways to get in. He is pretty agile for an old guy...But for some houses its not Babbo Natale that brings the presents, its baby Jesus. On Christmas Eve children write letters to the baby Jesus telling him what they are thankful for and what they want for the next year. And then Santa comes (sometimes by vespa) after the baby. Oh, and then the 3 wise men come on Jan.6th. BUT that another blog post! Merry Christmas from Italy everybody!
