Santa Lucia
(51 x 62 inches)

Every year on the 13th of December Santa Lucia is celebrated in Scandinavia. Lights are turned off and girls dressed in white, carrying candles and singing the Lucia song, are led in procession by the Lucia bride with candles in her hair. A symbol of the coming return of the sun and the lengthening of days.
