Lucia Day




My sister had a brilliant idea to dress her kids up and bring them over to my parent's house to celebrate a wonderful, Swedish tradition, Lucia day.  Lucia was a Christian martyr.  She would bring food to those in need in the darkness wearing candles on her head to light the way.  St. Lucia Day (December 13) continues to be celebrated in Sweden today.

Hey Sonja,

The H-A family celebrated Lucia this weekend as well. We even had two Lucias as Chloe wanted to get in on the crown action as well.

We've been doing it the past four years and it has become a fun tradition for the kids. They will even be bringing it to their classrooms tomorrow.

One of these days I'll get a few photos posted to the blog.

Hope all is well.

Sonja-
It was so much fun to team up for Lucia! Mom and Dad were surprised and thoroughly enjoyed it. Could you send me a few of your photos? I especially like the one documenting Addy and Gus knocking on the door.
Thanks for a fun morning!
