Sweet Treats From a Saint

StLucyGirlscrop1

St. Lucy walked the halls of St. Mary's School December 13th. Four 4th graders dressed up like her went from class to class telling the students about St. Lucy and brought morning treats. In Sweden, on this day, one of the shortest days of the year, the oldest daughter in each family represents Santa Lucia. She wears a wreath of lighted candles on her head to bring "good will and light to the long winter's night". She makes sweet cakes and coffee for each family member and then wakes the family by singing "Santa Lucia".
