Our Saint Lucia Celebration (rerun from 2010)

Yesterday was St. Lucia day. In our tradition St. Lucia and her Yule Gnome travel on the eve of her day leaving treats of maple candies to good little boys and girls. This St. Lucia Eve happened to also be the third Sunday of advent.

We read this story about St. Lucia by candle light with our St. Lucia and Yule Gnome doll as props.

The next day, on St. Lucia day, we baked her traditional buns. We use whole grain spelt instead of regular flour and we skip the saffron because it's so darn expensive. We enjoyed the buns during family game night. Yum! What a fabulous day!

Mouthwatering eh?
