Christmas Lore: The Legend of St. Lucia - SWEDEN
When you think Christmas, you probably think of jolly ol' St. Nick, not St. Lucia. Across the ocean, St. Lucia enjoys popularity that rivals Father Christmas himself. Christmas lore tells of a young woman from the island of Sicily. When the emperor Diocletian began his notorious persecution of Christians, this brave young woman gave away her entire dowry to support Christian families.

Believe it or not, the reason St. Lucia is such an integral part of Scandinavian Christmas lore has to do with early Christian Vikings. During their travels, they heard the story of St. Lucia and it captured their imagination.

Thousands of people still celebrate St. Lucia's Day on December 13th in Scandinavia and Italy.
Challenge Requirements:
As long as it is about the Legend of St Lucia or Santa Lucia. If you google it you will find many stories about it.

~ MOST IMPORTANT RULE ~
Have fun!
