What is Santa Lucia for Nordic European countries?
"Santa Lucia" (13th o December) is the winter-light festival, a celebration of light during the darkest days of the year in Nordic countries. Lux, luci means "light". The horror story is from the 5th century in Sicily where a Christian virgin refused to marry a man who removed her eyes or denounced her and she got her eyes removed. Since then she is the saint patron of blind people.
In our traditional celebration, a young woman of the family wears a white dress with a red ruban carrying a crown of candles. She is usually followed by the other children of the family.
