Santa Lucia’s Day is celebrated on December 13th in Sweden and other Scandinavian countries. It commemorates the life of Santa Lucia (aka Saint Lucy) and is the beginning of the Christmas season. It’s also a celebration of light at the time of year when the world is at its darkest.
We’ve added two new Swedish Santa Lucia songs to Mama Lisa’s World that are sung for the holiday. You can find them at the links below…
Happy Santa Lucia!
