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.
