St. Lucia Bringer of Light Paper Doll
St. Lucia Day and a Paper Doll
The Story of St. Lucia
How We Celebrate St. Lucia Day
I wish you could smell our house right now. I used this recipe and added a bit more sugar and juice from some oranges I had and some ground cloves and cinnamon (sorry just did everything to taste) to make my own version of St. Lucia’s crown. Then topped them with Craisins and holly leaves…we happen to have a holly bush which is so fun! If you want a more detailed recipe, this looks like a good one.
Here are our mini-Lucia’s. They wanted candles on their heads but we opted for candles on the bread. 🙂 I did look for some electric headpieces but they are not easy to find! Update: I found some on Amazon!
UPDATE – We found some great candle headbands (see below) HERE

I love this tradition! I think we’ll have to start this one next year. Your girls seemed to enjoy themselves and they looked adorable in their outfits.
I’ll have to keep an eye out for crowns and candles through out the year! Thanks!
LOVE IT thanks.
Thank you so much for the beautiful paper doll. I just printed her, and my little girl cannot wait to play with her. I am part Swedish and this is a lovely way to begin teaching my girl about Lucia. Merry Christmas!
If you are still looking for an electric St. Lucia headpiece, check out the American Dolls site. We bought one there 15-20 years ago, & it is still working well. It just needs new batteries every couple of years. – Marivene
I went to the American Girls Doll site to look for the St Lucia headpiece. It was part of the Kristen collection, but that doll has been archived & is no longer available. You might be able to find the crown on eBay or etsy. -Marivene
Thanks Marivene! I looked on Amazon but didn’t want to pay that price. They also had them online but shipping from Sweden and I didn’t see them in time. I’m thinking I may just make some for next year…we’ll see! 🙂
Beautiful! Just beautiful!! Sorry, I’m behind on your blog–you know, Christmas and all! Love you!
It is really nice to see that you celebrate Lucia! All countries in scandinavia do it nowadays, it is such a nice tradition and you have put up real nice pictures of your own celebration.
Here is the broadcasted celebration in Sweden from 2011.
We love the paper doll coloring book! I’m excited that it is on sale again.
