Lucia Day, 2008


December 13 is the Festival of Santa Lucia, celebrated in Sweden and in Swedish-American homes and in Lutheran churches.

This year it was also celebrated at the preschool division of the school where I work.

It is always wonderful.

Yours for illuminating the darkness,

When Nick and Lou were in pre-school they had a friend who was Swedish and the children had the delight of celebrating Santa Lucia - so precious - and lovely for the children to learn someone else's traditions so young

I have a friend who has a St. Lucia party every year and her daughter dresses as Lucia. I love how your Lucia is wearing Ugs! Very stylish.
