@Mary Honore, this reminds me of you helping me make Lucia buns. (illustration by Elsa Beskow)

Elsa Beskow was the illustrator that shaped my taste I think. The books my mother had loved as a child in Sweden were passed on to me and I poured over every detail and loved them too. --- I too Elsa Beskow.

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.
