I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and have a truly prosperous and delightful 2011 (no matter what the government is doing :-) Just enjoy everything you can enjoy and be kind to everyone (it's good for them and it's good for you too).
"Saint Joseph was a just man, a tireless worker, the upright guardian of those entrusted to his care. May he always guard, protect and enlighten familes."
St. Joseph's Day is a Big Feast for Italians because in the Middle Ages, GOD, Through St. Joseph's Intercessions, Saved the Sicilians from a Very Serious Drought. So in His Honor, The Custom is for All to Wear Red, in The Same Way that Green is Worn on St. Patrick's Day, Generosity Marks This Day,
as it did the Character of Joseph
Himself. In Many Nations it's a Day
of Sharing with the Poor and Needy,
and Nowhere is This better carried out
than in The Nation that perhaps loves
The Most: Italy.
ST. JOSEPH, The Patron Saint of Happy Homes
