Happy St. Lucia Day friends!
As a dweller of the Northern Woods, I adore all that this Scandinavian holiday stands for. It is the Festival of light, a time to celebrate the nights knowing that soon the days will be longer once more.
Of course it is also a time to celebrate the days, no matter how short they are, and the beautiful season of Winter where all is quiet and peaceful for a short time.
Here in the northern part of Canada we also have dark cold winters, with frosted trees and dark nights.
As night approaches we are peaceful and merry, because we know that the dark season will soon pass. My dear pup Remington is a true King of winter, always frolicking in the snow no matter how cold or dark it is.
And as the nights turn dark, we light our homes with candles and stars, to remind us that even through the darkest night there is light, hope, and joy.
Happy St. Lucia Day and God Jul!
Thank you to Heather for hosting this sweet and cozy blog procession. I loved writing this post. Hop over to her blog Audrey Eclectic for more processions and post about St. Lucia Day and a Scandinavian Christmas.
My love and blessings,
