Saint Lucia side note



Went to a local Swedish fair today (yummy food!) with friends and made a connection with Saint Lucia...or Saint Lucy as my (Italian) Grandmother calls her. 
Patron saint of eye sight or I guess "the light" which is much less gory than how I knew of her growing up....but I have to admit I have always been fascinated by the eye balls she holds-(ew!) 
anyway It's interesting seeing how religion/culture transforms from country to country.
