What a nasty little man....
Father Dino could not have imagined the scorn that would be heaped upon him after he told children at mass that neither Father Christmas - nor the kindly witch called the Befana who provides presents at New Year to Italian children - really exist.Idiota! Befana, that man deserves a lump of coal.
Blessings of the season to you and yours,
