Lucina was an early Italian goddess of light who merged with Juno and Diana to bring us the light that overcomes the dark. In the fourth century, Lucina was renamed as St. Lucy, a Sicilian girl who vowed to distribute her family’s wealth to the poor. Somehow Lucy and her sacred light were carried to Scandinavia, where the winter nights seem endless. For her feast, little girls wear garlands and everyone carries Lucy candles. Let us celebrate Lucina and Lucy.
