The Swedish community in the Cleveland area invites you to experience a Swedish Lucia celebration
The program begins with a winter concert of the mixed choral group: Vasa Voices, directed by Judith Higbee, singing traditional winter and folk songs in Swedish.
Following the vocal concert, the Lucia procession takes place. Lucia and her attendants processing and singing traditional songs. Come to hear one of the traditional stories of Lucia, a young girl wearing candles in her hair, who brought light and food to the hungry. Lucia is both a tradition in Italy and Sweden.
Following the program dessert and beverages will be served. Donation of $5.00

The following Information is copied from the website administered by the Swedish Institute: the official site of Sweden, offering you the facts and stories of our country.
Lucia - White gowns, stars and candles
The real candles once used are now often battery-powered, but there is still a special atmosphere when the lights are dimmed and the sound of the children singing grows as they enter from an adjacent room.
Tradition has it that Lucia is to wear ‘light in her hair’, which in practice means a crown of electric candles in a wreath on her head. Each of her handmaidens carries a candle, too
The star boys, who like the handmaidens are dressed in white gowns, carry stars on sticks and have tall paper cones on their heads. The brownies bring up the rear, carrying small lanterns.
