dress up - st. lucia
I like the festival of St. Lucia day which is celebrated on the 13th of December. Though I do not claim heritage to this part of the world I do enjoy learning about different cultures.
The history behind this day.
In Sweden the eldest daughter rises early and wearing a white dress, red sash, and with whortleberry-twigs and nine lighted candles as a crown awakens the family with singing and serves coffee and saffron buns.
Here is my own little special St. Lucy dressed in a nightgown her Mama made from a bed sheet a few years back and a crown template from Sweet Paul Mag. Lots of super fun craft ideas over there.
