Olivia's school's choir performed a St. Lucia concert this week. The whole school walked to a nearby church to watch. All the participating students dressed up as Lucias, tomtes (Santas), star boys, or gingerbread men. I think six kids passed out (or had to sit down) including Lucia herself, and another kid threw up. The concert was unintentionally exciting.
There are plenty of products for sale locally that bear the characters of St. Lucia Day. It's kind of a big deal here, although not an official holiday in the day-off-work sense.

Olivia has already enjoyed dressing up in her Santa Lucia outfit, although her turn to do this at school isn't until next week.
