Sankta Lucia

Today we celebrate Lucia all over Sweden. It's a very old tradition and if you want to read all the details - check it out here. Also - each city elects there very own Lucia every year - so for some girls - it's a dream that comes true..

We are going to my parents this morning with some Lucia buns and Ginger bread cookies. Isac and his cousins Rebecka, Victoria and Julia are going to sing some songs for them and bring them the cakes. Isac was dressed as Santa when they had the Lucia event at the kindergarten (Friday). Here you have some pics of him from his very first Lucia event - 2007, then he was a Gingerbread boy in 2008 and this year he wanted to be Santa.
Well - that's why I thought of Lucia when I saw this cute image - Star of Bethlehem.

I coloured them with my copics and used my Basic Grey DPs of course. Went for a clean layout and added Country Elegance Flowers and some extra bling! The white birds in the left corner is a rub-on that I've received.

Well - I guess you want the chance to win some more Advent candy - so please leave your name and link with Mr Linky below. Summer will pick the lucky winner and it might be your name posted on the sidebar tomorrow. Good luck!
