Santa Lucia (pronounced Loo-CEE-uh in Scandinavia…what is it here???) ) is December 13th, and the holiday celebrates the darkest time of the year with a light festival (December 13th was traditionally thought to be the longest night of the year). In the Scandinavian countries, a procession of girls carry candles and treats wearing white dresses and a red sash. The lead girl wears a crown of candles.
