Lucia Celebration with the Nordic Club
Come celebrate Lucia, a December tradition popular in the Nordic countries! There will be:
- Traditional Lucia music
- Lucia 101
- Coffee, glögg and Swedish holiday treats
Dec. 13 is the longest night of the year, and to stave off the darkness, Swedes in the late 16th century came up with a joyful solution to the cold and dark season: a Queen of Light celebration. Wearing a white gown and a crown of candles in her hair, Lucia and her attendant girls and boys sing songs in the darkness and then serve gingerbread and coffee or glögg (mulled wine) to their guests.
The CU Nordic Club invites you to our CU version of the tradition.
Wednesday, December 12 at 5:00pm to 6:30pm
