Happy Santa Lucia Day!
Today is Santa Lucia Day. In the future, Lucy is supposed to wake before dawn and bring us coffee and cakes to our bed, while wearing a ring of candles or her head. Well, that’s according to the books we have checked out from the library. Sounds both lovely and horrifying at the same time. For now, I am just pleased that she slept through the night.
Despite my best efforts to find a local Santa Lucia Celebration, we watched a couple of videos instead – the traditional Swedish song as heard above and Rick Steve’s introduction to the tradition below during a trip to Norway. I did not read the Wikipedia article to her about Saint Lucy. Eww…
By the way, Lucy thinks that today is Christmas because of the word “Santa” in the title.
