Some Catholic feast days have food associated with it. Sometimes the food goes a tad overboard on the symbolism. Behold! St. Lucy pastries! The only dessert you  can have a staring contest with!
St. Lucy Pie makes me want to say "OMM NOM NOM NOM NOM!"

It's like someone let Grant Morrison in the kitchen!

More traditionally are the "Lucy Cats" which are made in Sweden. They are, as the internet and some liturgical Advent materials say, delivered by young girls with candles in their hair on this day. The cakes, visibly (haha! pun!), are made in the image of eyeballs.

Lucy cats (as opposed to LOL CATZ)

 You think this is bad? Wait til you see what people do for St. Agatha's Day!
