Bringing light into the dark of winter: Saint Lucia Day in Sweden

Bringing light into the dark of winter: Saint Lucia Day in Sweden.

Yesterday was the celebration of St. Lucia Day.  Being a Hemmapappa, I had no exposure to how this holiday was celebrated, though K had a huge feast at school and a visit from the St. Lucia representative.  The above link takes you to another blog, Fika after Fifity, that has a very nice description of the holiday.

  1. Thank you for reblogging my post. My experience in the cathedral the other night was extraordinary; so beautiful. Simple, unpretentious, nothing like celebrations with a lot of fancy dresses or anything like that. Just very beautiful and moving, with these perfect voices ringing out in the cathedral here in Växjö, the Bishopric seat in Kronoberg, so it’s a beautiful and very old church.

    • Your very welcome. Thank you for writing such a nice post, and as Vaxjo is the the closest “large” town near me, it worked perfectly. I wanted to write something about it, but being a stay-at-home recent expat arrival, I just didn’t get the opportunity to experience it. It sounds like I missed something beautiful.
