The celebration of Sankta Lucia is a Swedish Christmas tradition that marks the beginning of the Christmas season. You will enjoy this celebration of “light” with young ladies or “Lucia” and “Attendants” in white gowns, candles aglow and young boys or “Star Boys” in their white gowns and cone star laden hats, each carrying their own silver star raised high. Keep a sharp eye out for our little elves or “Tomten”. The program is narrated in English and sung in Swedish. The candles and church lend an ambiance you will cherish into your own holiday celebration.
