Second Saturday - Lucia Fest ushers in Christmas season according to 18th century Swedish tradition, live Christmas music, folk dancing, and crowning of Lucia. The Swedish Christmas (Jul) begins on December 13. Early in the morning, households are awakened by "Lucia", usually the oldest daughter of the family, dressed in a traditional white robe with crimson sash, and wearing a crown with lighted candles. It is customary for her to carry a tray with coffee and special saffron buns or ginger cookies to each one in the family as she serenades them with the lovely old Sicilian melody, Santa Lucia.
The Lindsborg Lucia Festival honors light and hope on the longest day of darkness.
