Festa della Santa Lucia

With another gorgeous sunny morning upon us, we took Emma for a walk into our town center. The Festa della Santa Lucia was going on in our main street, Via Cesare Battisti. There were homemade handicrafts, booths will antiques, hot mulled wine, cheese, and other foods from the region. Christmas Carolers were singing carols in front of our church. The feast is in honor of the patron saint and Lucia rides in on a carriage at the end of the festival to distribute sweets to the children.
