The lit up trees outside the arena.
Happy Lucia everyone! Eleven days left until Christmas now. And I’ve got my exam today… (so this is a scheduled post)
On Sunday evening my mom, sister and I went to the big Lucia concert in Globen. I’d never been before but I really liked it, it was a perfect break from my studying for my exam. The show started with a little theatrical number about winter’s king and Santa’s little helpers. When all the candles were lit it was pretty magical. It’s really something seeing all those candles light up the arena, and there must have been over a thousand people in the Lucia train.
I really appreciate that Sweden is more about candles, lights, warmth and cozyness on Christmas than full-blown commercialism like it is in the US (even though it has become more of the latter as of late here in Sweden too). It’s the candles and lights that make it so magical.
Do you celebrate Lucia? How do you celebrate?
