St Lucia Day is celebrated on December 13, once believed to be the longest night of the year. The saintly Lucia, whose name means “light”, makes a season of darkness warm and bright. On the morning of St Lucia’s feast day, communities all over Sweden host processions led by a young girl wearing a white dress, a crimson sash, and crown of candles—she is that year’s Lucia. She and other children sing carols, and hand out lussekatt (saffron buns), pepparkakor (ginger cookies), and coffee for breakfast.

St Lucia Day falls on a Friday this year. Prolong the holiday and host a St Lucia Day brunch! Here are some great recipes inspired by St Lucia Day, so you can have your own St Lucia Day feast.
