Queen Of Lights..

"SANTA LUCIA - THE QUEEN OF LIGHTS"
NL
Throughout Sweden the feast day of Lucia..
Is celebrated as a festival of lights..
Candles
In the early hours of the morning of December 13..
a young woman, dressed in a white gown..
and wearing a red sash and a crown of lingonberry twigs and blazing candles..
would go from one farm to the next carrying a torch to light her way..
bringing baked goods, stopping to visit at each house..
and returning home by break of day..
Candles
Every village had its own Lucia..
The custom is thought to have begun..
in some of the richer farming districts of Sweden..
and still persists although the crowns
are now electric lights..
