World Christmas: St. Lucia Day

Posted by Santa Claus on December 13th, 2008

St. Lucia procession

St. Lucia procession

 I was busy this morning. I visited many places!

The places I visited do something special today.  It is called Saint Lucia’s Day.  It is also called Saint Lucy’s Day.  It is a day about Light winning over Darkness. And that is what Christmas is about in many ways too!

Today the oldest girl in the house wakes up early.  She puts on a special white dress and red sash.  She wears a crown of 7 candles.  Then she wakes up her parents.  She gives them a special meal of coffee and buns.

At schools, they have special parades today.  The girls dress as Lucia.  The boys dress as Star Boys. There will be more parades tonight.  There will also be big, safe fires called bonfires.  There will be lots of friends and lots of singing.  It is a lot fun!

Merry Christmas!

P.S. What fun Christmassy things do you do at school or with your friends?  (You can leave a message for me. Or, scroll down to see what others have written!)

    That’s really neat I’ve never heard of St. Lucia day before. Sometimes around Christmas I go with loved ones to Bronners, which is a giant Christmas store that is open all year (it’s the size of a super Wal-Mart!).
