December 13th God Jul! (Sweden)

Feasting and celebrating begin on December 13th with Lucia Day, which legend says is the longest night of the year and a time when man and beast need extra nourishment.  A Lucia (Queen of Light) is chosen from each home, club, school, etc.  She is dressed in a white gown with a crown of candles in her hair.  She brings coffee, rolls and ginger biscuits.  
So to celebrate I donned my wreath with candles, we had some cinnamon rolls and hot chocolate! God Jul everyone!!!
