St. Lucy's Feast Day and a Great Crayola Giveaway !

 Feast Day: December 13
Born: 283 :: Died: 304

Today, December 13th, is St. Lucy's feast day. Lucy's name means "light", with the same root as "lucid" which means "clear, radiant, understandable." If you do not know about this young, beautiful saint you can read more about her here.  My oldest daughter especially loves this feast day because it is a tradition that the oldest daughter in the family wears a white dress with a red sash (red symbolizes martyrdom) and she wears a St. Lucy crown with candles on it.  The daughter serves sweet rolls to family members.  We will be having small cinnamon rolls from Costco instead of making them and I'm sure our children will enjoy placing lit candles on the rolls as an after dinner celebration and dessert.

Lacy at Catholic Icing has a beautiful post with ideas and resources to celebrate St. Lucy's feast day so be sure to check out her wonderful blog.

I want to spread the word about a great Crayola giveaway that my friend, Lynda, at My Heart's Desire is hosting! 

Lynda will be giving away the following Crayola products to one of her readers:  Glow Explosion Spin Magic, Mess Free Color Wonder Sound Studio, Model Magic Presto Dots, and a 64 Box of Crayola Crayons with an access code to try Story Studio.  I know I would love these great gifts as well as lots of others!

Be sure to visit Lynda's blog post here about this giveaway and to get more details.  The giveaway will run until December 17 so get your entries in before it's too late!

I give Joy to the World when I share inspirational stories about saint's lives and when I tell others how they can win some great Crayola gifts!
