Excuse us, but do you happen to know the way to Bethlehem?
We are on our way to see the Baby who would one day become king of the Jews.
La Befana was an old woman who was always sweeping. She loved sweeping and she would do it everyday.
La Befana come join us and come to see the Baby Jesus.
I am sorry but I can't
The Three Wise Men with gifts came searching for Jesus and asked La Befana which way to get to Bethlehem. La Befana did not no the way an so shook her head.
The Three Wise Men were telling La Befana how they were on their way to see the Baby of the Lord and give him gifts who would one day become king of the Jews.
Just before leaving they asked La Befana to join them and come to see the Baby Jesus. But La Befana had to much work to do and decided to stay at hometo do her work was the most important thing to her.
However, when she went back to her sweeping, she did not feel it was as important as it was before.
So, she set out to try to find the Baby Jesus and the Three Wise Men. And every time on the 6th January, La Befana give a present to the Good kids and a lump of coal to the bad. She goes to every house with a child just in case the Baby Jesus lives there.
