Lusse Lelle

This morning we celebrated Lucia down here in NZ. It was very beautiful, at least to me. The kids got dressed up and had practised the song "Goderafton..."; we had brought some Swedish pepparkakor for Grandma and Granddad and we had a little photo session, of course.
Lucia might have been a bit wasted down here, but to me it's important to keep up with traditions - so be it if we are in NZ, Brunei or wherever! Today it's Lucia, and feeling a bit homesick I'm going to have another pepparkaka or two!

Here is a little clip of a traditional Lucia celebration in Sweden:
