That afternoon the children were able to visit the nursing home and help the residents with some simple crafts. They also recited their Candy Cane poem for them.

On Thursday, we celebrated St. Lucy's feast day for the first time. Miriam was so excited! We made a special St. Lucy day bread and adopted the beautiful Scandinavian tradition where the oldest daughter dresses as St. Lucy and goes to wake the other members of the family. We cut the bread and Miriam then took it to Mass and we shared it with everyone at Mass. It was a memorable day for her and is likely to become a family tradition!
