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!!!
