The Celebration of the return of the ligh

In Sweden the night before 13th December was once considered to be the longest of the year and was traditionally the beginning of the Christmas period. The next day, St Lucia’s Day, the festival celebrating the return of the light takes place. Every girl wants to wear the crown of candles and lead the “Lucia procession” (boys too nowadays). And at this time, people gather in the “Julstuga” (Christmas parlour) to make music, sing and dance. Miriam Andersén and her fellow musicians bring the “Christmas parlour” to Graz.
