St. Lucy

Protestants aren’t that keen on celebrating saints, but on December 13th we celebrate the memory of St. Lucy (Santa Lucia) with lights, a parade, sweets and Christmas songs.


Saffron buns (Lussekatter in Swedish) are typical on this day.

One of my favourite Christmas carols is Nu tändas tusen juleljus. Here’s the Norwegian version, sung by Sissel.
