She was known as Lucia of Syracuse (on the island of Sicily). According to Catholic.org, she was a Christian woman whose mother arranged her marriage with a pagan. But through prayer, she changed her mother’s mind.

But as you can expect, it didn’t sit well with the betrothed. He reportedly outed her to the Roman authorities as a Christian, and she was subsequently tortured to death. NOW there’s a heart-warming Christmas story for the kids.
