What Does Santa Lucia Mean to You?

Growing up in a church with Swedish roots, I learned early on that December 13 is Lucia Day. Swedish Americans have great traditions at Christmas. One of these is celebrating Santa Lucia. This year we got to experience Lucia at our church in MI!

Beautiful table decorations
Smorgasbord dinner with tons of Swedish food

A lovely smorgasbord dinner was followed by a program of music, Scripture, and of course, Lucia and her court.

Lucia and her court

Going to Santa Lucia in a Swedish Covenant church is way different from “going to Santa Lucia” in Yaounde, Cameroon. There, Santa Lucia is the name of a store!
