Today, Friday, December 13, students in Waldorf Schools all over the world celebrate the festival of Saint Lucia. This festival of lights brightens the dark days of midwinter and celebrates the life of Saint Lucia, an Italian saint known for her kindness and love. Saint Lucy or Lucia, whose name comes from the Latin word “lux” meaning light, links this celebration with the days growing longer after the Winter solstice.

Wherever you may find yourself on this day of celebration, may the symbol of Santa Lucia bring you hope, peace and light during the dark of Winter.
