Dec. 13 – St. Lucy Day
In Sweden and Norway, December 13 is the day to remember St. Lucy. The eldest girl in the family dresses in a white dress with a red sash and brings saffron buns and coffee to her family. On her head is a crown of candles that shines light on one of the daarkest days of the year.
