Even more snow!

I'm loving this winter! I woke up this morning to a very snowy Milan! Even when I left the house around 8.30 there must've been a good 20 cm of snow on the ground, if not more. And it's been snowing all day too, I love it! And there's more snow forecast for tomorrow and Thursday!

Buona Befana to any Italians out there, today's the Epiphany, a public holiday in Italy. It's the day when good Italian kids receive presents from the witch Befana, and bad kids get a lump of coal! I guess it still amuses me that on a Christian holiday, kids get presents from a witch! Well, as long as it keeps them happy I guess...!
