Feast Day

St. Lucy's Day is today and we began the tradition I grew up with - the eldest daughter wears a gown of white and a wreath and serves her family coffee and rolls. This morning Maddie served us rolls and eggs and juice. We had read about St. Lucy of Sicily last night and learned some of the traditions associated with her feast day. Maybe one day, we'll find a creative and safe method for wearing a crown of candles. For now, we'll have the daughter carry one in her hand.
