A Swedish Christmas

Lucia day

December 13th is Lucia day in Sweden. On this day, schools, nurseries and colleges are filled with the singing of carols and children traditionally wear candles in their hair - we discussed the associated health and safety issues! From a grateful parent, we have received a gift of traditional Lucia safron buns. This gift gave the school an opportunity to discuss with the children, the different Christmas traditions experience by Christians in Sweden. We are very fortunate to have so many children with family connection from all over the world. This rich mix of cultures enables the school to explore Christianity as a world faith in all its wonderful variety.
