Saint Lucia

The girls woke us up this morning with a Saint Lucia tradition. They get up early and "prepare" breakfast (with help from Grammy). Then dress in white and enter the room with a wreath and candles on their head. As they enter they say "Saint Lucia invites you to breakfast."
It is a Scandinavian tradition that we have picked up. You can also read about it in the Kirsten American Girl books. It is one of my favorite traditions. They work hard at keeping it a secret.
