St Lucia's Day

Celebrated in Sweden, the focus of the celebrations focus on the returning of the strength of the sun. A ‘Lucia Queen’ is selected in each village. She wears a crown of lighted candles and carries a tray of food and drink to each house, followed by a procession of candle bearers. These celebrations are in keeping with the traditional Norse Yule sun festival origins.
