Santa Lucia Day in Sweden The celebration comes from stories that were told by Monks who first brought Christianity to Sweden. It is a celebration of festival of light, honouring St. Lucia. St. Lucia's Day is now celebrated by a girl dressing in a white dress with a red sash round her waist and a crown of candles on her head.

St. Lucia crafts (candle wreath crown for girls, star hat for boys) to celebrate the traditional Scandinavian holiday that focuses on bringing light into the darkness of winter, and also (in some Scandinavian countries) ushers in the Christmas season.

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.
