Thy Light Is Glowing: Santa Lucia

Santa Lucia,
thy light is glowing
Through darkest winter night,
comfort bestowing.
Dreams float on dreams tonight,
Comes then the morning light,
Santa Lucia,
Santa Lucia.
Today is Santa Lucia Day. St Lucia was a girl who was killed by the Romans for being a Christian. Legend has it that her ghost used to lead Christians fleeing persecution through the catacombs under Rome with her eyes on a tray, and a wreath of candles, leading the way to safety. Read more here: here are some St Lucia dolls I made with silk dresses and silk-tops for hair.
