La Befana is not a witch.  She is an Italian fairytale lady who brings gifts for children on 6 Jan.  This is when Italians would exchange gifts, way back when Christmas was strictly a religious holiday and 6 Jan was a settler's holiday.  #themoreyouknow

In Italian folklore, Befana is an old woman who delivers gifts to children throughout Italy on Epiphany Eve in a similar way to St Nicholas or Santa Claus. A popular belief is that her name derives from the Feast of Epiphany or in Italian La Festa dell'Epifania. Epiphania is a Latin word with Greek origins. "Epiphany" means either the "Feast of the Epiphany" or "manifestation." Some suggest that Befana is descended from the Sabine/Roman goddess named Strina.
