Santa Lucia Day in Sweden is 13 December. The celebration comes from stories that were told by Monks who first brought christianity to Sweden. It is a celebration of festival of light, honouring St. Lucia. St. Lucia's Day is now celebrated by a girl dressing in a white dress and a crown of candles on her head.
St. Lucia crafts (candle wreath crown for girls, star hat for boys) to celebrate the traditional Scandinavian holiday that focuses on bringing light into the darkness of winter, and also (in some Scandinavian countries) ushers in the Christmas season.
