Hey Ivano and Mildred Buon Anno, or in Furlan we say Bon Prinzipi. Today 6 January in Friuli they are celebrating the Epiphany. The tradition known in Furlan as "Il Pignarul" they burn off the dried corn husks in huge piles. One can see the fires all throughout Friuli especially in the area of Nimis. See You Tube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAmaHJ_j8l4 of an old Furlan Pagan Tradition. Also today the Befana also comes bringing toys to all the Children
