Advent Christmas Countdown ~ December 13th


Lucia Day ~ She was a young Christian girl who was killed for her faith in 304 AD. She wore candles on her head so that she had both hands free to carry food to the persecuted Christians hiding under the city in Rome. This Christmas tradition is still celebrated every year in Sweden on this day, December 13th.
