Celebrate Santa Lucia Day at home this year with a Lussekatter recipe by Cook & Eat guest chef Anna Brones (and author of Fika: The Art of The Swedish Coffee Break), Lucia crown templates by Willow of Wonder and Sankta Lucia by Portland Nordic Chorus!
An Oregon tradition since 1956, the Lucia, Queen of Light program puts young women with and interest in Nordic heritage in touch with this beloved legend of Scandinavia, while offering them the opportunity to serve their community and receive Scholarships ranging from $2,500 to $1,000. The official Oregon Lucia is crowned each year at NNW’s ScanFair in December. Lucia and her court members appear at various Nordic events during the holiday season and throughout the year.
