St. Lucia Day
St. Lucia Day is celebrated on the longest day of the year (winter solstice). St. Lucia was a girl who brought the christians food and water when they were hiding in the Roman Catacombs during the pursecution of christians. She wore a white robe with a red ribbon tied around her waist. She had a wreath crown with candles on it. She had to walk through the forest to reach the catacombs. The Swedes honor her braveness and generousity by having the oldest girl dress like her and bring cinnamon rolls and hot chocolate to everyone in the family at 5 AM.
