St. Lucia - In Sweden, Christmas begins with the annual Saint Lucia Day on December 13. Lucia herself was Christian and died for her faith. The December 13 holiday honors her. Usually, the eldest girl in the family portrays St Lucia, puts on a white robe in the morning and is allowed to wear a crown full of candles. She serves her parents Lucia buns and coffee or mulled wine.
