Saint Lucia Gown - In Sweden, on the darkest day of the year, the oldest daughter dresses up as Saint Lucia. She wears a beautiful white gown with a red sash and a wreath of glowing candles to symbolize the coming of brighter days. On Saint Lucia Day she wakes her family before daylight and takes them coffee and sweet buns.
CHRISTMAS IN SWEDEN - very fun, especially the Lucia.....I gagged though, watching the boy eat all that marzipan~let alone cringing, thinking the Lucia girl had candle wax dripping on her head! Oh! How about sparklers in the Christmas tree!!!
