"Befana is also connected to ancestral spirits as a mythical ancestress who returns yearly. Through her timeless visits to the hearth, her function is that of reaffirming the bond between the family and their ancestors through an exchange of gifts. The children receive small gifts from La Befana, which in ancient times were representations of ones ancestors, to whom offerings of food were set near the hearth (now milk and cookies for Babbo Natale)."
