Saint Lucia Gown by DaisyViktoria Saint Lucia Gown by DaisyViktoria
This is my personalized Saint Lucia gown, which I made for Saint Lucia Day this year. I wanted to create something that honored the tradition while incorporating my own style and aesthetic elements.

Saint Lucia Day is a beloved tra­di­tion in Swe­den. The orig­i­nal Lucia was a 3rd cen­tury Ital­ian girl who wore a crown of can­dles and brought food to those who were per­se­cuted. Another leg­end says that in Varm­land, Swe­den, where my fam­ily lives, Lucia brought food to the starv­ing vil­lagers at Lake Van­ern. St. Lucia Day is Decem­ber 13, which was pre­vi­ously Win­ter Sol­stice on the old Julian cal­en­dar. On this day, the eldest daugh­ter dresses up in a white gown with a red sash and a crown of candles and brings Lucia buns to her house­hold.

Oh, how cool! You should learn all about Lucia (who was actually Italian) and celebrate! I love St. Lucia Day, and I think it's a great holiday for everyone to celebrate! (:
