I love this day and hope everyone is having a wonderful day curled up with hot cocoa and lussekatter!
Please don’t forget the wonderful free stories that are out there by my friend, the wonderful Master teacher and writer Christine Natale: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10811968/Stories/A%20Little%20Story%20for%20Saint%20Lucy’s%20Day%20-%20December%2013.pdf
There is also a gentle and sweet tale about St. Lucy right here on The Parenting Passageway for free: http://theparentingpassageway.com/2011/12/14/guest-post-a-gentle-santa-lucia-story-by-tiziana-boccaletti/

One of my favorite books for this day is “Lucia: Saint of Light” by Katherine Bolger Hyde. It combines the traditions of Santa Lucia from a Swedish perspective mixed with the main stories we have heard regarding Santa Lucia and includes a recipe for lussekatter. Here is the cover:
Have a wonderful, warm day!
