Happy Festival of Lights



Every year on Dec 13 we celebrate St Lucia Day.  It's a Swedish tradition that the oldest girl in the family dresses in a white gown with a red sash then brings coffee and saffron buns to the parents in bed at first light.  Well, last night we were up late making these saffron buns, and we have a busy day today, but still, it's still nice to take a few moments out to celebrate light here on one of the darkest days of the year.  So Happy Festival of Lights to all of you.
