Dec 13 is Saint Lucia day in Sweden, where each town's voted "Sankta Lucia" wears a crown of candles and, escorted by girls in white with a red sash and "star boys" brings light and song (and saffron buns!) to homes and workplaces.

Details - This was filmed in Sweden in 2002.
The lady in the middle is on YouTube as emmajohannesson
The lady 2nd from the left end is hannadabbour.

I DID NOT APPEAR IN NOR FILM THIS - It was sent to me many years ago and I do not, unfortunately, know of its source.

Lyrics in Swedish:
Sankta Lucia, ljusklara hägring,
sprid i vår vinternatt glans av din fägring.
||: Drömmar med vingesus under oss sia,
tänd dina vita ljus, Sankta Lucia. :||

Kom i din vita skrud, huld med din maning.
Skänk oss, du julens brud, julfröjders aning.
||: Drömmar med vingesus, under oss sia,
tänd dina vita ljus, Sankta Lucia. :||


English (sorry it's a bit of a poor translation):
Saint Lucia, bright clear mirage,
spread in our winter splendor of your beauty.
| |: Dreams with wings rustling, over us prophesy,
light your white candles, Santa Lucia. : | |

Get your white robe, gracious with your call.
Give us, you Christmas Bride, an idea of Christmas.
| |: Dreams with wings rustling over us prophesy,
light your white candles, Santa Lucia. : | |
