Day 15 of Advent: St. Lucia Day

December 13th marks the traditional Scandinavian holiday of St. Lucia Day. It is a celebration of light in the darkest month of the year. Traditionally, the eldest girl in the family dresses in white with a crown of candles on her head. Songs are sung and coffee and pastries are served.

Here is a short video of a traditional St. Lucia day church procession:

In this season of Advent, we are reminded of the light that will come into the world on Christmas Day.
