A favorite Swedish holiday tradition is St. Lucia Festival celebrating the figure that is the emblem of light on a long winter day - Lindsborg's day begins at 10:00 a.m. with live holiday music downtown.

Folkdancers, live Scandinavian music, and a processional of girls in white carrying candles and stjrngosse (star boys) lead the crowd to the Bethany Lutheran Church where the annual St. Lucia is honored with a crown of candles. Stay awhile and enjoy ginger cookies served by Lucia herself.
