HAPPY SANTA LUCIA DAY!! On this day school and kindergarten in Norway are going with lights and singing the song to Santa Lucia. Before the weekend they baked buns called Lussekatter and in the morning they give it to those they sing for and eat themselves as well. It is a day for light - about light being stronger than darkness. In early time one thought this was the darkest day there was, they was a week early but still it is good to light our candles and sing the darkness away. The girl who gave the day it's name was a Italian christian who put her own life in danger to help others. She carried food to those who had to flee from persecution and since she had no room for light in her hands she made a wreath and placed her lights in her hair. Happy Lucia-day! Posted by Hello
