- We walked on the beach where we started collecting driftwood for our art workshop.
- Euro Team reading: (7 Euro teams with 7 teachers ) the Corsican legend of St Lucie's eyes in European group. The idea of the spiral and the importance of kindness and being friendly and helpful to others.
The legend of the eye of Saint Lucia:
Saint Lucia, virgin and martyr, young girl from Syracuse accompanyied her mother who was suffering from a serious illness on the tomb of Saint Agatha. With long prayers, she got her mother's healing. She was so thankful that she distributed all her belongings to those which had nothing and she unpleased her fiancé who accused herself of being a Christian. According to the legends, she tore away her eyes, she put them on a plate and had them brought to her fiancé so that he would never forget their beauty. Her fiancé who could not forget their beauty (which explains why we represent her carrying in one hand the palm of the martyrs and one the other hand a plate with her eyes on), either she tore her eyes and threw them into the sea so as not to be diverted of her faith and get closer to her suitors; which gives a link with our famous seashell caught or picked up in Corsica or in the Mediterranean basin.
Lucie is invoked to treat eye diseases. By analogy, the eye of Saint Lucia removes the evil eye, brings luck and happiness, even prosperity when it is placed with money.
Its use in jewelry:
In Corsica, the eye of Saint Lucia is found in many jewelers. It is to make simple pendant or associated with other materials it is highlighted.
