Lucia ⭐️

Lucia − the bearer of light. Alongside Midsummer, the Lucia celebrations represent one of the foremost cultural traditions in Sweden, with a clear reference to life in the peasant communities of old: darkness, light, cold & warmth. Lucia is an ancient mythical figure with an abiding role as a bearer of light in the dark Swedish winters. And it’s always celebrated on December 13.
