Santa Lucia Day opens the Christmas season with the oldest daughter of the household adorning herself in a long white gown, red sash and a glowing crown of candles. She wakens the family members with the Lucia songs and serving saffron buns and coffee at their bedside. The Swedish Village of Kingsburg has adopted this very special tradition. The sidewalks of Draper Street will be filled with arts and crafts along with specialty home baked good, gourmet items, and Swedish entrees. There is a Gingerbread House Competition at the library and the evening concludes with a Festival of Lights Parade.
