The legend of La Befana is that she is an old lady (sometimes depicted as a "witch") who hears of the birth of Jesus and is looking for him to bring him presents. La Befana never finds the baby Jesus, so instead she brings presents to all the good Italian children. La Befana always comes on January 6th (also known as three kings days) and leaves Little Bear a small present.
Little Bear seemed really excited with this gift and practiced writing his letters on the dry erase board for almost 40 minutes. I spent those 40 minutes trying to wake up since it was 5:30AM (will this child ever sleep to 7AM??)
