Santa comes to Barga.

 Father Christmas was spotted by the stunning xmas tree outside Capretz handing out presents to the local children. The intrepid photographer O'Connor manages to snap a couple of images before the man in red vanished once more into the mist.

It was only when the editor of started to write up this weeks pages that he noticed an incredible thing.......could it really be true that Father Christmas is also the Befana ??? Or maybe the Befana is his sister???? Judge for yourself from the images below of La Befana on the 23rd December and Father Christmas on the 24th December.

There is also a nagging doubt that we have seen this face somewhere else before ..........the problem is, where ?
