Lucia is really one of my favourite traditions during Christmas. I remember when my mom used to “lussa” for me in the morning when I was younger with glitter in her hair, fresh saffron buns and traditional white Lucia outfit. And it is a tradition I have taken with me – I do the same thing in the early morning for my fiancé with hot chocolate and homemade saffron buns. Something that is really appreciated.
For those who do not know what Lucia is, you can read more here. There are many different stories where it comes from but what Lucia is for me is a wonderful day to brighten up the dark season, where I usually watch the lucia procession early in the morning either on TV or in a church and of course eat lots of saffron buns. This morning I watched a Lucia video on YouTube. Do you celebrate Lucia?
