Today is a special day in Sweden, since it is the 13th of december - "Luciadagen". Usually in every family, school, university, ... there is a Lucia t?g, with one girl being the Lucia with real candles on her head. You can read more about this tradition here
When I was in Sweden I went to a Lucia concert in the "Globen arena" (the biggest arena in Stockholm for sports, concerts and all other kinds of events). It was one of the most fabulous concerts I ever went to, the atmosphere there was just amazing.
is a picture I found on the net which gives a little bit of an impression. There were about 1000 school kids with real candles singing the Lucia song (my favorite swedish christmas song). It's hard to describe, you have to experience it yourself.
Is that already 3 years ago? Hard to believe.
