Celebrating St. Lucy Feast Day....2012

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

Today, December 13th, is St. Lucy 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 Swedish 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. 

If I wasn't fighting all day sickness because of my pregnancy ( I made the big announcement yesterday on my blog post HERE) I might have been better prepared for this day by actually having sweet rolls ready today. :)  But, then again the day is not over yet so maybe I'll get some energy to bake some rolls :)

Like last year, our family will pile into our van tonight and look at all the Christmas lights (since it is the feast of lights).  I got this great idea from Jen at her blog post HERE

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.
