Lucia Day, December 13, marks the beginning of Christmas in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. The tradition is dated back to the year 1764. The Lucia has candles in her hair, a red ribbon around her waist and she wears a long, white dress.The tärn-girls have candles in their hands and glitter around
the waist. The stjärngosse-boys have a tall, white paper cone with stars on their heads and a star on a stick in their hands. Usually the Lucia brings a tray with cups of coffee, saffron rolls “lussekatter” and
gingerbread cookies “pepparkakor”. There are Lucia processions everywhere in homes and workplaces and every village elects its own Lucia.
