KIDSTEMPLE: SANTA LUCIA
As part of the kids temple http://www.terragonhf.org/kids-temple.html, we share traditions from all faiths and cultures that teach values to our children. This time we celebrate **Santa Lucia**, a Christian festivity most popular in Scandinavia. Santa Lucia brings the light when winter is at its darkest, coinciding with the winter solstice. She wears a crown with candles to light the way, so she has her hands free to bring also food (and abundance).
It is a time to reflect on the year that is ending and the year that it is ahead of us.
