St. Lucia - In Sweden, Christmas begins with the annual Saint Lucia Day on December 13. Lucia herself was Christian and died for her faith. The December 13 holiday honors her. Usually, the eldest girl in the family portrays St Lucia, puts on a white robe in the morning and is allowed to wear a crown full of candles. She serves her parents Lucia buns and coffee or mulled wine.

The gift of light We thankfully take, But nothing may be Just alone for our sake. The more we give light To one and another It shines and spreads life Growing still further, Till every spark is set aflame. Till every heart, Joy shall proclaim!

This would be the perfect plate to wake up to...nevermind the fact cookies are supposedly not for breakfast lol.
