L'Epifania tutte le feste porta via...




E con la giornata di oggi, cioè l'Epifania, si concludono le feste natalizie!
In Italia il proverbio del giorno è (appunto!)

"L'Epifania tutte le feste porta via!"

Nella cultura anglosassone, l'Epifania conclude i 12 giorni di festa a partire da Natale (5 Dicembre - 6 Gennaio), oggetto di filastrocche e canzoni.

Per voi un'ultima casa, dall'atmosfera natalizia, nonchè scandinava e la filastrocca, lunghissima e difficilissima da imparare ma che tutti voi conosceranno:
