On December 14, the strains of "Santa Lucia" are heard everywhere in Sweden as the white-robed maiden comes out of the night with her crown of lighted candles dispelling the darkness and bringing bright light to the Christmas season. Our holiday pageant follows the traditions of a Swedish Lucia celebration. The 2019 Oregon Lucia Court participates along with the children of the Swedish School in Portland. Music of the season provided by the Scandinavian Men's and Women's Chorus and vocal soloists. After the program, there is customary singing and dancing around the Christmas tree, and a visit by Tomten, glögg, coffee and beloved baked goods provided by New Sweden, SVEA and the Swedish Women's coffee group.
