December 13 is St. Lucy’s Day

December 13 marks St. Lucy’s Day, which is celebrated in many religions and cultures in many different ways. St. Lucy or Lucia as she is called in Scandinavian folklore. The story surrounds struggles between light and darkness. Below is a video of the story  of Saint Lucy  and how it is celebrated.

It is a sad story, but she stands up for herself, and others and what she believes. She believed so much she was willing to die for it. She would not compromise her beliefs. She was standing up for herself and others, how else could you become a saint.
