Saint Joseph's Day, March 19, the Feast of Saint Joseph is in Western Christianity the principal feast day of Saint Joseph, husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It has the rank of a solemnity in the Roman Catholic Church.It is a feast or commemoration in the provinces of the Anglican Communion, and a feast or festival in the Lutheran Church.In some communities it is traditional to wear red clothing and eat a Neapolitan pastry known as a zeppola (created in 1840 by Don Pasquale Pinatauro in Napoli) on Saint Joseph's Day.Upon a typical Saint Joseph's Day altar, people place flowers, limes, candles, wine, fava beans, specially prepared cakes, breads, and cookies (as well as other meatless dishes), and zeppole.Foods are traditionally served containing bread crumbs to represent saw dust since Joseph was a carpenter.Because the feast occurs during Lent, traditionally no meat was allowed on the celebration table.The fava bean was the crop which saved the population from starvation and is a traditional part of Saint Joseph's Day altars and traditions.

In Belmonte Mezzagno this is currently still performed every year, while people ritually shout invocations to the Saint in local Sicilian language.March 19 always falls during Lent, and traditionally it is a day of abstinence.This explains the custom of Saint Joseph tables being covered with meatless dishes.If the feast day falls on a Sunday other than Palm Sunday, it is observed on the next available day, usually Monday, March 20, unless another solemnity (e.g., a church's patronal saint) falls on that day.Since 2008, if Saint Joseph's Day falls during Holy Week, it is moved to the closest possible day before 19 March, usually the Saturday before Holy Week.
