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. "
