Santa Lucia's coming begins feasting, merriment, singing and the spirit of friendliness and goodwill that lasts throughout the Holiday season. According to legend, Lucia was a medieval saint who carried food and drink to hungry folk in the province of Varmland during a period of famine. She was seen across Lake Vanern with her white gown and crown of lights. This gesture to bring warmth and light on the darkest and longest day of the solstice is still celebrated today. There are many legends, but in each one Lucia'stands for the symbol of light and hope to all mankind.
