December 14, 2019  St. Lucia Festival - Lindsborg, Kansas
According to legend, the story of Lucia came to Scandinavia when Sweden was in the throes of an appalling famine. At the peak of that terrible winter a ship shining with light, laden with food and at the helm a beautiful girl, came across the waters of Lake Vännern in the province of Värmland. Food was distributed and the people of Sweden were saved from starvation. Therefore, to honor Lucia, whose name is derived from lux meaning light, the eldest daughter of Swedish families awakens early in the morning to serve saffron buns, ginger cookies and coffee to her family. She wears a white gown with a red sash and a crown of lingonberry branches with seven lit candles. The green and light represent new life in the climax of the Winter Solstice. A favorite Swedish holiday tradition, also observed in Lindsborg, is the Lucia Festival celebrating the figure who is the emblem of light and comfort with candles in her hair and food in her hands.
