Santa Lucia’s coming begins feasting, merriment, singing and the spirit of friendliness and goodwill that lasts throughout the Holiday season. According to legend, Lucia was a medieval saint who carried food and drink to hungry folk in the province of Varmland during a period of famine. She was seen across Lake Vanern with her white gown and crown of lights.... There are many legends, but in each one Lucia stands for the symbol of light and hope to all mankind.

Christmas Traditions: Christmas begins in Sweden with the Saint Lucia ceremony. Before dawn on the morning of 13 December, the youngest daughter from each family puts on a white robe with a red sash. She wears a crown of evergreens with tall-lighted candles attached to it. She wakes her parents, and serves them with coffee and Lucia buns. The other children accompany her & the boys dress as star boys in long white shirts and pointed hats. (Safety: only use electric candles, not real ones!!)
