the dark side

Photo of the Day: Today was Santa Lucia day. I went to Elliot’s play school and saw their Santa Lucia procession. It was adorable. He was dressed as a gingerbread man.


Observation of the Day: Saint Lucia is the saint of light and the Santa Lucia celebration is to celebrate the coming of the light because it is the darkest day of the year. Each city has their own elected Santa Lucia. There is a procession and singing with the Santa Lucia, star boys, gingerbread men, and santa clauses. People also eat delicious saffron rolls.
