Santa Lucia With Crown of Candle Light Give Us Your Cheer So Bright !

Today Swedes celebrate
that interesting custom
of the young ladies dressed in white 
bringing lightly browned and
freshly baked yellow
saffron buns
to the household in bed before dawn,
all while wearing a garland of lit candles
upon their heads !
It is a mid winter fest activity,
bringing light into the darkness. 
Santa Lucia Buns
are delicious !

Feel free to see the angel earrings !

Someone very special to me celebrates their birthday today,
and we have occasionally made these lovely little buns ! 
Very interesting this custom of Saint Lucy !

Hoping you are enjoying the Christmas Markets of the World !
