Saint Lucy's Day

It's December 13th, Saint Lucy's Day! The feast of this saint, a native of Sicily, is celebrated in a special way in Siracusa - her birthplace - where she is the patron, and in Sweden, as well as other parts of Europe. In Sicily, where by tradition wheat products are not served on this day, arancine (rice balls) and cuccìa (wheat berry pudding) are popular.
