Santa Lucia Day, one of the most popular traditions in Sweden is celebrated on December 13 every year. In homes, schools, hospitals, train stations, etc., in many establishments the Lucia will come with her attendants to greet the people singing the beautiful Lucia song and Swedish Christmas carols.

In the Milwaukee area the Lucia Day is celebrated on Sunday December 12 at Whitnall Park Lutheran Church, 5847 Lilac Ln, Hales Corners, starting at 5 PM.

This event sponsored by the Swedish American Historical Society of Wisconsin is open to the public and features children and young adults from the area performing a Lucia program in the Sanctuary, directed by Sonia Hummel.

After the program Swedish food and pastries will be served while the children will perform traditional Swedish Christmas song and dance. Everyone will be invited to join the dance around the Christmas tree. Santa Claus (Jultomten) has also announced his arrival.

Concerning the prevention of spreading the Covid infections it was announced earlier to refer to CDC and Milwaukee Health department guidelines, and that face masks are strongly encouraged and will be available at the entrance. In addition, the Whitnall Park Lutheran Church requires that anyone not vaccinated must wear a face mask in their facilities (except when eating or drinking).
