Saint Lucy's Day, also called the Feast of Saint Lucy, is a christian feast day celebrated on 13 December in Advent, commemorating Saint Lucy, a 3rd-century martyr under the Diocletianic Persecution, who according to legend brought "food and aid to Christians hiding in the catacombs" using a candle-lit wreath to "light her way and leave her hands free to carry as much food as possible".
She is represented as a lady in a white dress and red sash with a crown or wreath of candles on her head.Lussinatta, the Lussi Night, was marked in Sweden December 13. Then Lussi, a female being with evil traits, like a female demon or witch, was said to ride through the air with her followers, called LussiferdaBetween Lussi Night and Yule,trolls and evil spirits, in some accounts also the spirits of the dead, were thought to be active outside
One story tells us that Lucy gifted her eyes to the Pagan man, and asked him to leave her alone.The second story tells us that during the torture, Lucy’s eyes were taken out and that God had restored her eyes back.
According to the legend, she was threatened to be taken to a brothel if she did not renounce her Christian beliefs, but were unable to move her, even with a thousand men and fifty oxen pulling. Instead they stacked materials for a fire around her and set light to it, but she would not stop speaking, insisting that her death would lessen the fear of it for other Christians and bring grief to non-believers. One of the soldiers stuck a spear through her throat to stop these denouncements, but to no effect
