The Star December 11, 2013

Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

It is two days til Santa Lucia.

When I was very young, a family friend of Swedish background would have a predawn Santa Lucia breakfast. I hated getting up so early but loved the warmth and sweets and candlelight.

Three times, I got to celebrate Santa Lucia in Verona. And because of that, every December I am nostalgic and yearny for all things Italy and the star in the Piazza Bra.

Today I found this video of the star and the piazza and the holiday stalls and the food, taken just last year.

Waiting for light…

Kate, I had to steal your Verona video; one of my better fb friends is from Verona, and I thought he would enjoy this youtube video from last year.
