The Feast of Saint Januarius

The Feast of Saint Januarius, also known as Festa di San Gennaro, is a religious celebration held in Naples, Italy, on September 19 each year. It honors Saint Januarius (San Gennaro), the patron saint of Naples and a revered Christian martyr. The highlight of the feast is the “Miracle of the Blood,” where a vial containing the dried blood of the saint is displayed, and the faithful gather to witness its liquefaction, which is believed to be a miraculous event.
