Lucia celebration in Shanghai

11 Dec 2019

With girls and boys clad in white full-length gowns carrying candles and singing songs, the Consulate General's Lucia celebration was open to the public for the fifth year in Shanghai on December 7.

Arguably one of the most Swedish traditions was celebrated with a Lucia procession consisting of the Swedish choir and children from Shanghai Yangjing Experimental Primary School at Jing’an Kerry Centre. Meanwhile a “Luciafika” – a traditional Swedish Christmas refreshment break, including gingerbread, saffron-flavored sweet buns (lussekatter) and Swedish mulled wine (glögg), was served to an audience of more than 400 people.
