Santa Lucia is coming…

November 19, 2021 | Traditions

Santa Lucia is the ancient mythical bearer of light in the dark Swedish winters.

“The annual candlelit Lucia procession on 13 December is perhaps one of the more exotic-looking Swedish customs, with girls and boys clad in white full-length gowns singing songs together… The star boys, who like the handmaidens are dressed in white gowns, carry stars on sticks and have tall paper cones on their heads. The Christmas elves bring up the rear, carrying small lanterns.”

There are many Lucia songs, but the most famous one, based on a traditional Italian melody, can be heard here.

In the spirit of the tradition, we would like to invite everyone to an evening of Lucia festivities on December 11, 2021. We will serve a classic “sandwich cake” (smörgåstårta) along with Lucia buns and sparkling juice. We’ll also make some paper Jul decorations to take home to really enter into the spirit. Hope to see you there!
