Lucia Day 2015
Swedish and Finnish ancestry makes the Quimper Hitty human especially happy on the 13th of December. On this day, the oldest girl in a Swedish house would prepare a special breakfast, and wearing a crown of candles she would waken the household with fresh saffron buns while singing the Lucia song.
In the Cupboard this would be Constance, but this year she is forgoing the white gown and lighted crown, and we also haven’t had time to make saffron lussekatts. But we are celebrating anyway with mormor Bengtsson’s pepparkakkor!
Happy Lucia Day – the light will soon return!
