In Italy, Christmas celebrations often include the Nativity crib scene, depicting the birth of Jesus, as well as Carol singing, attending Christmas Mass, eating a Christmas meal often with Panettone for dessert.
Celebrations in Italy last from Christmas until Epiphany on January 6, which is another traditional day for gift giving. Children often hang stockings Epiphany night, which are filled by Befana, a nice old lady who rides a broom.
