Alongside Midsummer, the Lucia celebrations represent one of the foremost cultural traditions in Sweden, with their clear reference to life in the peasant communities of old: darkness and light, cold and warmth. Lucia is an ancient mythical figure with an abiding role as a bearer of light in the dark Swedish winters (ref). St. Lucy’s Day, or Lucia, is typically celebrated on December 13, a day once coinciding with the Winter Solstice- the shortest day of the year. Therefore it has become a celebration of light.

Last night we invited some special guests to experience a traditional Lucia celebration at the Nordic Homeworx Showroom in Sidra Tower, Dubai. Damkören SALT, a professional female choir from Sweden, performed as Lucia and her maidens while our guests enjoyed freshly baked lussebullar(saffron buns) and pepparkakor (gingerbread cookies) along with a hot cup of tea or coffee.

It was a magical evening and we are so happy we got to enjoy a typical Scandinavian winter celebration here in Dubai!
