Lucia festival at Häggvallskolan

The 13 of December, Sweden celebrates the festival of Lucia. The festival of Lucia is an old Swedish tradition that dates back to the 14oo century. In the old days the people celebrated Lucia to welcome back the light. This refers to the winter solstice, occurring around December 21 or 22 and is the shortest day of the year. The tradition has changed some during the years, but one thing remains the same the character of Lucia. As seen in the pictures Lucia is a women with a crown of light in here hair. During this festival our students sings traditional songs. Afterward the students eat a traditional cake called “Lussebulla” that contains the spice Saffron.


  • We like the message being conveyed in this celebration. Enlightenment and spirit celebrated and valued by people is always positive.

    Shall we guess that you enjoy the cake Lussebulla very much?
