December Holidays Before Christmas

The Christmas season is upon us, but two minor holidays are coming up in the next two weeks. The Immaculate Conception, a national holiday, falls on Sunday the 8th, so no bank closings.

The 13th is St Lucy's Day. This is the patron of Siracusa, but around Sicily rice balls (shown) and cuccìa are consumed while bakeries are closed.
