VIDEO: The sounds of Swedish Lucia
A screengrab from The Local's Lucia Day video

December 13th is Lucia Day in Sweden, and if you didn't have a chance to see a Lucia Day concert of your own, The Local has a quick video that can offers up a taste of what Sankta Lucia is all about.


All across Sweden, school children and choirs don white robes, candles, and funny hats and break into song to honour St. Lucy, the patron saint of the blind. For more background on Swedes' Lucia Day celebrations, click here.

But if you've got a minute, literally, watch this short video below, filmed in the lobby of The Local's office building on December 13, 2013.

Happy Lucia!
