This morning is pure magic when you are visited by Lucia and her followers all dressed in white and serving you hot coffee, buns, and gingerbread cookies. If you live in a city with a large Swedish population, they celebrate Lucia and this is an event not to be missed. It is celebrated the 13th of December every year. It's a long standing tradition with deep roots going back to Italy.
My niece in Sweden sent me this link and it is magic. This young woman loaded a wheelbarrow with candles and went to the woods and lit them. I would like for you to see the rest for yourself.
