Its really interesting learning about how other countries celebrate the Christmas Season. On Dec 13 the youngest daughter is supposed to serve the family breakfast in bed. Its a meal of coffee and buns. The girl will wear a crown of holly leaves and 7 yellow candles. She also wears a white gown. The boys of the family wear a big hat with stars on it and a white gown also. Other girls in the family will dress in a white gown. Samantha loved this idea. So on Dec 13 she will put on her crown and gown and serve Steve and I in bed. This is the Saint Lucia ceremony.
Here she is making her crown...
For people in Sweden they celebrate more on Dec 24 since they spend the day at church on Christmas day. The majority of the people belong the the Lutheran faith.
So Samantha earned her first stamp in her passport. I plan on doing a different country each day.
