Today is the feast of Saint Lucy. There are various traditions associated with this saint. In Sweden, the oldest (or youngest) daughter, while wearing lighted candles upon her head, carries a tray of coffee and pastries to her parents before they arise in the morning. That's a tradition worth starting! (the coffee and pastry part - not the lighted candles on top of any of my kid's heads.) Happy Feast Day Lucy!
Here she is receiving her blessing on the Feast of St. Francis.
