✐ SANTA LUCIA'S DAY IN SECOND LIFE



Full lenght (5 min) video clip on YouTube

Saint Lucy's Day (December 13 every year) is one of my favorite celebrations in Sweden, we call it Santa Lucia. This is the darkest time of the year, (sunrise: 8:35 AM, sunset: 2:47 PM), so this day is very special to me. Lucia and her maids brings light and sings beautiful christmas songs, very much needed during this depressing time of the season, so much darkness.
-----------------------------------------------
"The Swedish lyrics to the Neapolitan song Santa Lucia have traditionally been either Natten går tunga fjät (The Night walks with heavy steps) or Santa Lucia, ljusklara hägring (Saint Lucy, bright mirage). There is also a modern version with easier text for children: Ute är mörkt och kallt (Outside it's dark and cold)"

"Saint Lucy's Day or the Feast of St. Lucy (Santa Lucia, Saint Lucia or sometimes Lucia for short) is the Church feast day dedicated to St. Lucy and is observed on December 13. Its modern day celebration is generally associated with Sweden..."

"In the Lucia procession in the home, the oldest daughter brings coffee and St. Lucia buns to her parents while wearing a candle-wreath and singing a Lucia song. Other daughters may help, dressed in the same kind of white robe and carrying a candle in one hand, but only the oldest daughter wears the candle-wreath."
