Luciadagen/St. Lucy’s Day (Scandanavia)
St. Lucy was a 4th century martyr who brough food to hiding Christians wearing a candle-lit wreath on her head to light the way. The day is particularly celebrated in the Scandinavian countries where a girl selected St. Lucy leading a procession of women with a white gown, red sash, and a crown of candles. (Wikipedia)
