Occurring on December 13th, St. Lucia’s (Lucy’s) Day is traditionally observed by Scandinavian and northern European countries. In Scandinavian cultures, St. Lucy’s Day is celebrated with a young girl dressed in white and wearing a crown of candles leading a procession of Christmas carolers and bearing gifts of lights, coffee, bread, and sweets. Santa Lucia Buns, made with saffron, are a tradition in Sweden, while Norway offers similar lussekatt buns.
