Default Happy Sankta Lucia Day

December 13th is St. Lucy's Day, who's story is very sad, but her contrubution as the 'bringer of light' is widely celebrated in Scandanavian countries, where each village will have a parade with a blonde haired girl will lead the procession wearing candles in her hair, and they all sing this mesmorising tune https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2-Q_ObdE-4

We have seen it perfored once, and it was truly a memorable night.
Hope you enjoy this video (there are loads of them out there) and the tune leaves you feeling at peace.

Alan.
