Santa Lucia is beloved by the Scandinavian people, most especially the Swedish; however, Lucia was born, lived and died a martyr in Sicily.  December 13, Saint Lucia Day,  is celebrated still to this day in many parts of Italy and after three long years of sharing the Scandinavian celebration of this holiday on this blog I am so thrilled to finally be able to share in what ways the Italians celebrate.

Lucy Day - the celebration of St. Lucia - is almost here and preparations are in full force in Norway, Sweden and Denmark because Lucy Day is the beginning of the Christmas holidays which will last for many in Scandinavian countries until January 20th - St. Knut's Day!

Celebrating St. Lucia Day with a recycled wreath and Lucy goodies!

Remember my leaf wreath?  I have recycled it into a wreath to celebrate Saint Lucy Day!

One ornament to Celebrate Four Holidays! Hanukkah! Santa Lucia! Feast of Guadalupe! Advent!

The feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the beginning of Hanukkah, and Santa Lucia Day all fall on the same weekend this year! 

I love this cheerful little ornament that can be adapted for any one or all of them!
