Sankta Lucia - Santa Lucia

Santa Lucia

Santa Lucia came from Sicilia with some swedish soldiers a long time ago.
At this time, people were thinking that the longest and darkest night was the Santa Lucia night, and that Santa Lucia brought the sun back.
Now, Santa Lucia comes with a candle crown on her head and sings the Santa Lucia's song. She brings with her pepperkaka and safran cake (Luciakatte)
