Happy feast day to me
Today is the feast of St. Lucy, patroness of eyesight. Today for some reason the Swedish and others begin their Christmas decorating (we do it on the Immaculate Conception, which you could say is when God started His); I think it is because Lucis is "of Light" in Latin, so they begin preparations for the coming of the Light of the World, by whom the blind see, as well. So she really is quite a fitting precursor. I am posting an icon of her that I made a while ago.
