Saint Lucy was a beautiful young Sicilian woman who came from a rich Roman family who secretly converted to Christianity when she was a teenager.
After her father died, a pagan man wanted to marry her, but she had already dedicated her life to God, so she refused.
Lucy asked her mother to distribute her dowry to the poor, but her mother refused. Shortly after this, Lucy's mother became very ill with a bleeding illness, so Lucy and her mother went to Saint Agatha's shrine to pray.
Exhausted from being up all night, they both had fallen asleep near Saint Agatha's tomb. When Lucy woke up, she remembered Saint Agatha coming to her in a dream and telling her that her mother had been healed. Lucy's mother was convinced that it was a miracle and allowed the dowry to be distributed among the poor.
Hearing this, the pagan man became furious and denounced her as a Christian. The governor’s guards were sent to get Lucy and take her to a brothel where she was repeatedly tortured, they gouged out her eyes and then stabbed her in the throat causing her death. Her eyes were miraculously restored.
The name Lucy means 'light' so her feast day is celebrated with candles, bonfires and torches. It is said that Saint Lucy wore a crown of candles so she could see while serving the poor Christians who were hiding from persecution in the catacombs in Rome.
Hungarian tradition considers St Lucy's Eve to be among the most effective time for successful divination. Hungarians acknowledge 2 saints named Lucy, one is the official saint, the other is described as a 'strange being'. Hungarian girls and women were forbidden to do any sort of women's work on Lucy's feast day. Instead, the day was spent celebrating Lucy.
