Come Celebrate Santa Lucia Day

29 11 2021

The popular Swedish tradition of Santa Lucia will be celebrated at

Whitnall Park Lutheran Church, 5847 Lilac Ln, Hales Corners, December 12, 2021 starting at 5 PM.

The program is conducted by SAHSWI member Sonia Hummel and will feature Lucia with her attendants in a procession singing the Lucia song and popular Swedish Christmas carols.

In this Swedish tradition, Lucia brings light and music to the darkest days of winter. Crowned with candles and dressed in white, she is accompanied by her procession of attendants (tärnor) each carrying a candle, starboys (stjärngossar), gingerbread boys and girls (pepparkaksgubbar) and elves (tomtenissar).

A traditional Swedish Smorgåsbord will be served and everyone can join in dancing around the Christmas tree. Santa will arrive handing out treats for the children.

The event is open to the public.
