Celebration of Saint Lucy’s Day and a Bringing of the Light Ceremony

Widely celebrated in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Croatia, and Hungary, the Feast of Saint Lucy is commonly held on December 13.

Saint Lucy was a 3rd-century martyr, who according to legend, brought “food and aid to Christians hiding in the catacombs” using a candle-lit wreath on her head to “light her way and leave her hands free to carry as much food as possible.” Her feast once coincided with the Winter Solstice, so her feast day has become a Christian festival of Light. It is said that to vividly celebrate Saint Lucy’s Day will help one live the long winter days with enough light. (Wikipedia)
