Take a Break: Scandinavian Christmas-St. Lucia’s Day

December 13 is St. Lucia’s day. This feast honors the saint, who, according to legend brought food and aid to Christians hiding in the catacombs using a candle lit wreath to light her way thereby leaving her hands free to carry as much food as possible. 

A celebration dating back to the middle ages, it’s a time to bring light at the darkest part of the winter. Watch the video below to learn more about this tradition. 

If you would like to try one of the recipes for the special buns served, try King Arthur’s recipe.

May this day bring joy and light as we await the coming winter solstice and Yule!
