❄️Today, Sweden celebrates St. Lucia, a tradition going back hundreds of years. It is celebrated with saffron buns and traditional Lucia processions.
St. Lucia processions are popular in kindergartens, schools and elsewhere. It includes boys and girls clad in white gowns, holding candles, and of course, the Lucia herself with a crown of candles.
If you are in Vilnius, join us in celebrating St. Lucia together with the Embassy of Sweden in Vilnius this evening in St. John’s church. The event will also be broadcasted online if you can not attend in person.
