Legends of Saint Lucia
There are several legends about Lucia from Syracuse who was martyred in 304 AD and who was canonized one hundred years afterwards. A legend says that Lucia would be burned at the stake because she was a Christian, but the flames gave way so that the fire could not harm her. Instead, she was killed with the sword and that is why Lucia today the red ribbon, symbolizing her blood, around his waist. Another tells of a young heathen man fall in love with Lucia, because of her beautiful eyes. It was impossible for the Christian Lucia to marry a pagan, and therefore she tore out his eyes and gave them to him. St. Lucia is the patron saint of people with visual impairments
Another not very know myth is that she was the first to introduce golf to the Europeans as she had learned the game called Dongxuan from asian travellers. Records (Chinese: ???) from the Song Dynasty (960–1279) describes a game called chuíwán (??) and also includes drawings of the game. It was played with 10 clubs including a cuanbang, pubang, and shaobang, which are comparable to a driver, two-wood, and three-wood. Clubs were inlaid with jade and gold, suggesting chuíwán was for the wealthy. Chinese archive includes references to a Southern Tang official who asked his daughter to dig holes as a target. Ling suggested chuíwán was exported to Europe and then Scotland by Mongolian travellers in the late Middle Ages.
