  • Santa Lucia Day

What is Santa Lucia Day?

Ceremonies of Santa Lucia are held all over Sweden, from cities, towns, churches, and even families. Several other Nordic countries also celebrate Lucia. 

Along with the Summer Festival, the Lucia Festival is one of Sweden's oldest cultural traditions, closely related to the elements that were considered the most important in the life of ancient farmers: darkness and light, coldness, and warmth. Lucia is a legendary figure whose role is to bring light to the long cold Swedish winter.

Santa Lucia Day

Traditionally, the boys and girls will line up like white angels led by Lucia wearing shimmering candle garlands in her hair. This wreath is often linked with cranberry branches (lingonberry) with green leaves all year round and is a symbol of new life in winter. Each girl in the choir will hold a candle while the boys also wear long white robes, star sticks in their hands, and paper hats, and the last group will carry small lanterns. In the dignified and quiet atmosphere, when the lights fade and the children sing as a group of children enter from a neighboring room, you will certainly feel moved during this ceremony. 

The origin of the Festival begins with the story of Saint Lucia. Saint Lucia is a young Catholic girl who secretly brings food to accused Catholics in Rome who have to live in hiding in the dark underground tunnels of the city. In order to walk in the dark and bring as much food as possible, she often carries a candle on her head. Lucia was later martyred in 304 and became Saint Lucia. The name Lucia (or sometimes Lucy) is also appropriate because it means light.
