December 13

Many are celebrating the feast day of Saint Lucia today. It’s significant to me for another reason. Though I was born in the states, my mother is St. Lucian and I lived there till I was 6. I spent the rest of my childhood and teenage years visiting my family there whenever possible. Today is St. Lucia’s National Day. Today, we will light candles and bake bread among other things. Wren really loves this story about Lucia’s generosity and we have already read it twice today. I think I will surprise the kids with some Lucian food for dinner.
