St. Lucia’s Day, festival of lights, is celebrated in Sweden on December 13. The festival begins with a procession, led by a St. Lucia designee, who is followed by young girls dressed in white and wearing lighted wreaths on their heads, singing traditional songs. Baking saffron buns and ginger cookies to celebrate is how we will follow this delicious tradition.
