Holiday Calendar

December 13th

9 days till Hanukkah
12 days till Christmas

Happy Santa Lucia's Day!

The silver star shines on the sea,
The waves are calm, the wind is favorable
Come to my quick little boat!
Santa Lucia! Santa Lucia!

With this west wind so gentle,
Oh, how wonderful it is to be at sea!
Come passengers, come away!
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!

Oh sweet Naples, oh blessed sun,
where creation wished to smile!
You are the command of harmony!
Santa Lucia! Santa Lucia!

Now why do you delay? The evening is beautiful
A cool and light wind is blowing
Come to my quick little boat!
Santa Lucia! Santa Lucia!

Have you finished writing, addressing, and mailing all your Holiday cards out? I just finished up last night. It's a joint effort in our household. I handle all the writing and addressing. My husband handles the signing of his name, the licking of the envelopes (yuck!) and the sticking of the stamps.

If you haven't finished yours, fret not. I bring you another free tutorial on how to make your Holiday cards by hand.

I love the song Santa Lucia! I hear it every day in Italian at the Venetian...I never knew what it meant before.
