Traditions: St. Joseph Feast Day March 19
St. Joseph Feast Day is a traditional Italian holy day: Seven days before the Feast of the Annunciation (25 March) which commemorates the Annunciation (Gabriel's visit to Mary announcing that she is to give birth to the Messiah), we meet St. Joseph, her spouse. To honor the carpenter, much of the food includes breadcrumbs, representing sawdust. Giving food to the needy is a St. Joseph's Day custom.
