Theme: Christmas Around he World
A Christmas in Sweden is a Christmas play summarising the Swedish tradition of St. Lucia Day to honour St. Lucia, a young Christian girl who was martyred in 304 A.D.
Like Christmas, the holiday has religious meaning, but has also become a fun family and community holiday. St. Lucia Day, December 13, is also Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year in Scandinavian countries. St. Lucia is the bearer of light during the dark of Winter.
