St. Lucia Celebration

St. Lucia Day will be coming soon, and I wanted to share with you our celebration from last year.  
 We had three little girls with Lucia namesakes.  Many of the girls wore white petticoat dresses with red sashes tied round their waist and Father had them all process around the church during the liturgy.
 After liturgy we lit candles on a Lucia wreath (birthday ring which serves multiple purposes through the liturgical year!)
 Tea and lussekatter were served
to many happy girls! 
Had to try the wreath on for size myself  :)

Thank you, as always, for these lovely sharings. (We have a Lucia at our house, too, and I'm hoping to get on the ball for some sort of festal celebration.)

That looks like such a lovely event! (And you look so beautiful in the last photo!)
