Lesson Five


LUCIA DAG – 13 december

We celebrate St.Lucia on this day who was raised in a distinguished Sicilian family. The girl who became Christian vowed virginity to offer her life to Christ and she died as a martyr. Her name was associated with light (lux) regarding her exemplary virtue and sacrificed life. She is a loved saint in Germany, too. Up north, the Luca fiancée was named in 1780 first with wreath and candle. The custom was reborn in Sweden in connection with the jubilee of Alfred Nobel’s death. More precisely, the closing day of the Nobel ceremonies is the 13 th of December. In the morning on this day, girls wearing wreath with candles celebrate the new Nobel- prize winners.
