Holidays / Santa Lucia collage card

"The night goes with weighty step
round yard and stove
round earth, the sun departs
leave the woods brooding
There in our dark house,
appears with lighted candles
Saint Lucia, Saint Lucia."

In Scandinavia, Saint Lucy's Day is celebrated on December 13th. The eldest girl in the family wears a crown of candles, carries a tray of saffron buns, and sings the Scandinavian version of the Santa Lucia song. 

In this collage card, a young Swedish girl is dressed as Santa Lucia. This is a perfect way to send a unique holiday greeting to your friend. The card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and is blank inside for your own message.
