Crema, Italy. It's the 12th of December, in Piazza del Duomo there is a small market of sweets and toys. This night is the longest of the year, all the children are waiting for Santa Lucia that brings gifts to the ones that have been good. The days before many kids put a small bunch of straw on windows or balconies for the donkey of Santa Lucia.
