Santa Lucia - Malta

Santa Lucia is a well-known traditional Neapolitan song. It was transcribed by Teodoro Cottrau (1827–1879) and published by the Cottrau firm, as a "barcarolla", at Naples in 1849. Cottrau translated it from Napuletano into Italian during the first stage of the Risorgimento, the first Neapolitan song to be given Italian lyrics. Its transcriber, who is very often credited as its composer, was the son of the French-born Italian composer and collector of songs Guillaume Louis Cottrau (1797–1847).The Neapolitan lyrics of Santa Lucia celebrate the picturesque waterfront district, Borgo Santa Lu

Discussion on Santa Lucia

:

My family always does and the eldest daughter wears a white nightgown with a crown of candles on her head on the darkest night of the year and gets up around 5am and brings coffee and santa lucia buns to all and sings...santa lucia..santa lucia I suggest celebrating Saint Nick all you do is on that day you fill the shoes of all with chocolate! The belief is that Tomty sneaks around and fills all the shoes. Its so much fun.

I recieved a letter from spain, it said that my parents have won $$$$$$$$$.They told my parents to send money to them and now they want more money.They told my parents that it's not a fraud, they evan said we can contact the police or the fraud company.We're not sure if it's true.If anyone has recievd a letter from the company Santa Lucia Seguros S.A Please contact me via E-mail.

SoftTSoul :
"Any time a letter is sent with the request of money - it is a fraud. Any lottery that one did not enter, but received information that they won - it is a fraud. Anyone purchasing lottery tickets outside their country is illegal to do so (as in USA) unless your country allows it. Since they are challenging you to contact your police department I would say do so. Your parents may be out a little money instead of a lot in the end. "

Sopraggiunge quatto quatto il Natale e neanche me ne accorgo, forse per gli impegni o forse perchè non ho mai avuto una grandissima passione per l’omone rosso e per i suoi animaletti volanti.Senza contare compleanni e altre festività del nord (Santa Lucia) che arrivano anche prima e proprio senza preavviso.

With the Christmas season fast-approaching children across the US will soon begin preparing for their school's annual Christmas pageants, a school tradition dating back for as long as I can remember. Which would be 40 plus years! Santa Lucia Day is just around the corner. Step back in time and see how it's celebrated.
