This year we started a new tradition..celebrating St. Lucy Day on December 13th. The night before we made wreaths out of paper plates and construction paper .Grandma and Aunt Marti made one too! We also planted wheat that sprouts by Christmas and on Christmas Eve we put it next to our nativity to represent the bread of life.
It's a tradition in Sweden that the oldest daughter carries a tray of coffee ( we omitted the coffee ) and pastries called lussekatter to her parents before they arise in the morning.. so the night before we made cinnamon rolls ( thank you Pillsbury Rolls ) and frosted them and added maraschino cherries, in the morning I helped Claire put the tray together and she carried them to her dad...We all enjoyed and Claire was thrilled!! We will definitely be doing this again next year!
