Saint Lucy’s Day


Today is Saint Lucy’s Day and after a hectic week with work and Christmas concerts I had a very quiet day. I went for a walk in the cold crisp air and sunshine. Taking caution on the icy road.


I was at a birthday party for a one year old and got served safron buns called “lussekatt” in Norwegian. And when I went to do some shopping I met a Saint  Lucy parade in the shopping centre.

    I like the idea that Lucia is celebrated anywhere and everywhere, even in the shopping centre. Ice? Here is it unseasonably warm with temperatures of 15 forecast later this week! It feels rather odd. Have a good week – do you have a holiday after this week?

    Baked foods are my favorite at the holidays.

  4. That’s interesting! I have to say, I didn’t hear about it before…

    The birthday party must have been fun – with many young kids around, I guess 😉 I worked with Swedes years ago and their children performed some songs for us for Santa Lucia. It was really interesting as it was so different from our culture.

  6. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    Christmas post reblog. This from Norway St Lucy’s Day and that bun looks delicious.

  7. This was the only post on St Lucy I have seen. It prompted me to look up information on her, and now I am much smarter. Thank you.

  8. Those saffron buns…so interesting. I use the spice all the time, but never thought of it in something sweet…maybe used for the yellow color ? Lovely post. ☺

  9. Beautiful to see the little girls singing in the mall. I learned about St. Lucia from my first mother-in-law. She was Swedish.Our Lutheran church often did a celebration of St. Lucia depending on how many were from the old countries. They celebrate it by slightly different names in different countries. Good thing the pastry doesn’t need a lot of explaining. Looks too yummy. Glad you had a fun day.
