St. Lucy Day

This was our first year celebrating St. Lucy Day, and I sort of threw it together at the last minute – but the kids enjoyed it, and I will definitely put a little more planning into it next year!

We had cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and traditionally they are supposed to be served to the family by the oldest daughter wearing a crown of greenery with candles in it on her head, a white robe, and a red sash.  There is no way we were putting anything with candles in it on Little T’s head, so we made a crown of green construction paper with four construction paper candles instead.  Next year I’ll work on the robe and sash part.

According to my Big Book of Catholic Customs and Traditions, boys can wear a blue hat with yellow stars on St. Lucy Day – so I made one of those for Mr. S.

The hats lasted past breakfast, much to my amazement!  I don’t think they’ll make it through the day, though – but I’m glad the kids enjoyed this new tradition, and I hope to make it more meaningful in the years to come.
