Lucia in Sweden

Good Morning and Happy Lucia.

Against the darkness of winter, blanketed in snow, today is the day where Swedish children and choruses rise before dawn with Saffron Buns and songs of Lucia.  On every street corner you will see a Lucia, Lucia maidens, Ginger Bread Boys, Star Boys and “tomte” — small Swedish Elves.  Occasionally, a modern Santa makes it’s way into the mix. If you’re not on Instagram, I wanted to spread wishes of the day  and share an imagine of the day with you, too.
