Lucia Day 2016



 Constance wishes all her friends a very Happy Lucia Day, may the light return soon!

Natten går tunga fjät
rund gård och stuva;
kring jord, som sol förlät,
skuggorna ruva.
Då i vårt mörka hus,
stiger med tända ljus,
Sankta Lucia, Sankta Lucia.


Night walks with a heavy step
Round yard and hearth,
As the sun departs from earth,
Shadows are brooding.
There in our dark house,
Walking with lit candles,
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!

  1. I wish my mother were here to see these Lucia Day photos. They are wonderful…seeing past ones too. I see those adorable little stars in the background…picture perfect.

    • I have always loved Lucia Day! My mother was always very patient with me on December 13th, and good-naturedly allowed me to bring her fresh home-made Lucia buns and coffee both of indifferent quality for breakfast!

  2. And a very Happy Lucia day to the Quimpers!!!!! Hope this Christmas season brings joy to each!!! Thank you for this beautiful photo!!!

  3. I’m taking this as a “card”, encouraging us all that the light will come back. Thanks for such a hopeful scene today, Constance…the decorations are so bright and vibrant.
