Lucia For Dummies

2 Comments Typically Swedish

It’s finally here, December 13th! A very special day, not only do I step on board my flight this afternoon and head to Sweden, today is also the day when Swedes around the world celebrate Lucia, a tradition that might seem weird to most non-Swedish people but makes perfect sense to all Swedes. You can get a crash course on what it’s all about below. 🙂 It’s also Friday today, don’t ask me why I chose to travel on this day. Lucky I’m not superstitious. See you on the other side folks. Sweden here I come!

    I think that Lucia works in Sweden because it’s so close to the winter solstice – it’s a perfect excuse to bake those bright yellow sunny buns and to sing about the light returning. It’s probably my favourite Swedish tradition and one I’d really miss if we moved to another country.

    Enjoy your trip “home”! Sadly, it appears that Sweden can’t offer you a white Christmas this year – isn’t that always the way? 🙂
