St. Joseph's Day Altar

Today is St. Joseph's Day. It is a Sicilian custom to make a devotional altar filled with sweets and special breads. The sweets are given to friends and family. This beautiful altar is is a private home. When a church does a St. Joseph's altar, they often provide a meal for the poor on that day.
