Saint Lucy’s light festival

When we had a swedish aupair girl some years ago during the season we got to know the wonderful romantic tradition of the Feast of Saint Lucy on December 13th which is celebrated in Scandinavia.

When the tradition began some hundred years earlier Saint Lucy’s Day was also the shortest day of the year it became celebrated as a festival of light. How the Swedish celebrate this special day is shown humorously in a nice video on vimeo.

Thanks to FruBlomgren Saint Lucy is part of our seasonal table decorations.
