Before I moved to Bishop Hill and was charmed by its culture, I was aware of Lucia and even recalled a Lucia Betsy McCall paper doll that was created in the early 70's. It makes a lovely memento of the day and I include it HERE TO DOWNLOAD with an invitation to join the crowd tonight as we celebrate the darkest night and the bringer of light, Lucia.
