Santa Lucia Day is December 13th and signifies the beginning of the Swedish holiday season. Lucia comes from a pagan tradition celebrated near the winter solstice. She was said to have appeared in the forests of Sweden one dark winter night wearing a wreath of candles on her head. She symbolizes abundance and light in the darkest time of the year. Lucia Day is celebrated everywhere in Sweden, including the schools. At home, the oldest daughter (traditionally) dresses up in a white robe with a red sash and a crown of candles (or electric crown) and serves Lussekatter (saffron buns made specifically for Lucia day) and Pepparkakor (Swedish ginger snaps) to her parents and the rest of the family, waking them with a beautiful song.
