Santa Lucia, the day we gather to listen to Lucia songs, but what is it? The Lucia celebrations represent one of the foremost cultural traditions in Sweden, Lucia is dressed in a white dress with a red ribbon, wearing a crown with candle lights, and we think it comes from an ancient mythical figure and she is the bearer of light, which is specially needed in these dark Swedish winters.
Either way, we love celebrating Lucia and this year we are inviting all of you to join! We will start at 09:30 but please come early, we recommend 09:15, so you can grab a great spot, mingle with some startups and coaches, and then be ready to be amazed by live singing at 09:30. Oh, did we mention, we are having Lussebullar* and Glögg** for you to get in the right mode!
If you're up for learning songs, here is a playlist with traditional Lucia songs:
