October 25 is the Feast of Saints Crispin and Crispinian, the patron saints of cobblers, curriers, tanners, and leather workers. The twin brothers fled their native Rome to France due to persecution. They preached Christianity during the day and made shoes by night and earned enough in this way to support themselves and give to the poor.
