Lucina, was and is, a Virgin Goddess of light and Childbirth. She is honored on this day, or was, in Ancient Rome. Also in Roman Calendar, the Nones of December, begins.

The Egyptian Goddess Bastet would have also been honored today because she will go forth from Bubastis. Bastet is a Goddess with the head of a Cat. Like Cats, the daughter of Ra could not be tamed. She was both generous and cruel. Kind to those who deserved kindness but cruel to those who deserved wickedness.
