Saint Lucia 2021

The 13th of December is Saint Lucias's Day, also known as 'Luciadag' in Denmark. Originally, it is a Swedish tradition that has been adopted into Danish Christmas traditions. It celebrates the life of Santa Lucia. Today, the festival is celebrated through numerous candle walks. Traditionally, the person (typically a girl) in the front of the parade portrays the saint. The person wears a crown of candles. Everyone wears white and carries a candle in their hands.  

For many, Lucia Day is a beautiful and warming event where light and song marks this special day in December. The original story of the saint was however not as calm and warming as this. Want to read all the story about Saint Lucia? Check it out here
