Christmas Village Celebration

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 song and serving saffron buns and coffee
at their bedside. The Swedish Village of Kingsburg has adopted this very
special tradition. Kingsburg celebrates Santa Lucia Day on
the first Saturday in December. The sidewalks of
Draper Street will be filled with arts and crafts along with specialty
home baked goods, gourmet items, and Swedish
entrees. There is a Gingerbread House Competition at the
library and the evening concludes with a Festival of Lights Parade.
