14.12.10 – Saint Lucy’s Day is a church feast day, dedicated to Saint Lucy, the patron saint of the blind, and is observed on December 13th. It’s one of the only saint days observed in Scandinavia and one of the most popular events during the Christmas holiday. Emma was chosen to be in her schools celebration this year. They performed on the 13th for some nursing home residents and today, we got to see the performance.
