St. Januarius (4th century)

Januarius was a bishop in Italy during Diocletian's persecution. While visiting imprisoned deacons, he was arrested, and later martyred. His blood was preserved, and dried. Every year since 1389, on his feast day, and on the Saturday before the first Sunday in May, his blood liquifies.
