Quote : " Lucia is celebrated on 13 December. Sankta Lucia ( St. Lucy’s Day ) is celebrated most commonly in Scandinavia, where it is a major feast day. Here in Scandinavia, she is represented as a woman in a white dress and red sash with a crown or wreath of candles on her head. In Sweden, girls dressed as Lucia ( Lucy ) carry rolls and cookies in procession as songs are sung. Boys take part in the procession as well, playing different roles associated with Christmas. "

Happy Lucia!

I've seen luciatåget couple of times and heard some songs like Staffansvisan or Midnatt råder (if I remember correctly). And of course, it wouldn't be fair not to mention the other fun part of Swedish Lucia - warm glögg, accompanied with some pepparkakor and lussekatter. :D

Are you one of the animals who became possessed because you can talk and you are a polar bear :p I could never be a "Lucia" as it states you must like children (horrible little monster things they are) sheesh, they make me shudder :eek:

I'm well aware that the good quality alcohol is the crucial element while trying to win people over. :LOL:

And we've turned the lovely Sankta Lucia thread into Bacchanalia festivities, sorry

Yesterday I bought one which was already planted and started growing and it took only few hours for my cat to eat and demolish at least one-quarter of it. :LOL:
My dog loves Christmas wheat! When I put it under the Christmas tree, she is constantly sneaking around it like I don't see her. When I'm not looking, she eats it. :ROFLMAO:

lol :D My sister's dog seems to prefer chewing Christmas moss to Christmas wheat. My cat, on the other hand, is a wheat fan and the designated destroyer of all the ornaments.

upnorth upnorth Never tried that combo, but I believe it might work :D
