Holiday lights - Via Roma

Looking down Via Roma during the Santa Lucia festival ...
Santa Lucia is the patron saint for Belpasso.

Her feast-day is 13 December.
She is quite popular in Sicily. 
She is also Syracusa's (south-east corner of the island) patron saint.   Every year Sweden sends a girl to Syracusa to portray Sta. Lucia during the festival in Sta. Lucia's honor.
