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.
#Santa #Lucia - This tradition actually comes from southern Sweden, but has been happily embraced and adopted by children in #Denmark. The December 13th #festival celebrates a martyr, Santa Lucia, and features a stunning procession of girls dressed in white carrying candles in their hands. The procession is accompanied by the Lucia song, and headed by the Lucia Queen, who wears a #crown of candles on her head.

We got a card from Emil and Frida. They told us about the Christmas goat. Every year, the city of Gavle, where they live, builds a giant goat made of straw. The Gavle goat is famous for being vandalized or burnt down. Since 1966, the Goat has survived until Christmas Day only 13 times. In 2012, the goat was burned to the ground on December 12. Now the Goat has its own Twitter page (twitter.com/...) and it actually answers people. Apparently it speaks Swedish and English.

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.

Vintage St. Lucia Day (December 13) card. A festival of light that marks the beginning of the Christmas season. According to tradition, St. Lucy, or Santa Lucia, was born in Syracuse, Sicily, in the third or fourth century. She was endowed with a fatal beauty that eventually attracted the unwanted attentions of a pagan nobleman, to whom she was betrothed against her will. She is the patron saint of the blind because in an attempt to end the affair, she supposedly cut out her eyes, which her suitor claimed "haunted him day and night"
