Lets celebrate the Light (St Lucia)

December the 13th we celebrate  St Lucia and the light. All of Sweden celebrate this day with a traditional Luciatåget. A girl dressed as Lucia who leads the tåget (train) with other children and young people who dressed as bridesmaids, star boys, gingerbread men and elves. The procession they marches around the school, kidergarten or indeed at work and sing traditional songs like “Santa Lucia”, “We come from Pepparkakeland” and “Staffan was a groom”.

Celebrate the light with some Saffron!

Don´t forget to bake some lussekatter and lussebullar or why not some lussekattsemlor which is a different saffron variation of semlor.

We are ready with my LO to celebrate the light with some saffron.
