12 Days of Christmas start with Sveta Lucija ( Saint Lucy )

Northwest Croatia including Zagreb surroundings was marking Saint Lucy’s day in many interesting ways, so let’s start with her depiction. In the past, a woman dressed as Saint Lucy would go around the village, visiting each house. When I say dressed as Saint Lucy, I mean adornments, too. Indeed, she was carrying a plate with some animal’s eyeballs.
