Lucia is one of the foremost cultural traditions in Sweden, with a clear link to life in the peasant communities of old: darkness and light, cold and warmth. Lucia can be perceived as a symbol of the good forces in life and a symbol of hope and light in the dark winter.
Her mission is to bring light and kindness, which is related to the meaning of “Lucia” (in Latin “lux” – light).
