Celebrate St. Lucia Day
Also called Saint Lucy's Day, St. Lucia is a church feast day, celebrated on the 13th of December.
The festival is usually associated with Scandinavia, but can be celebrated all around the world. During the celebration, Saint Lucy comes into the procession as a young girl or woman wearing a crown of candles, followed by many other young girls, each of whom has a lit candle in their hand.
The story is that Saint Lucy secretly brought food to persecuted Christians in Rome, who were forced underground into the catacombs. Lucy would wear a crown of candles so she could use both of her hands to carry items. Lucy also means "light," and December 13th falls close to the winter solstice, so the name "Lucy" also has much significance.
