Saint Lucy’s Day, also called the Feast of Saint Lucy, is a Christian feast day celebrated on 13 December, from Sicily and North of Italy to Scandinavia commemorating Saint Lucy.
Saint Lucy brings gifts to good children. In Scandinavia they celebrate the light in the longest day of the year (at least it was before the introduction of the Gregorian Calendar). Girls are elected to portray Lucia. Wearing a white gown with a red sash and a crown of candles on the head they bring cookies. They say that vividly celebrate Saint Lucy’s Day will help one live the long winter days with enough light.
If you today are celebrating Saint Lucy or not, lights create always the perfect atmosphere during Christmas Holidays. They can not miss, from the bedroom to the centerpiece they are perfect everywhere!
Are you looking for some new lights? Look at this from Seletti (109 €) and Ikea (Stråla € 14,99 – Svartrå € 37,99)! You can also paint them with spray paint (remove bulbs before do it!).
Are you going to celebrate Saint Lucy today? How do you do it?
