Lucy's Feast Day

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.
