You are invited to Swedish Women in Sydney’s traditional Swedish Lucia celebration in Sydney!
Who would have thought a year could go by so fast? We have already had a whiff of the scent of mulled wine in the distance and started dreaming of the queen of light – Lucia – and her entourage, star boys and Santas. Welcome to Swedish Lucia celebration in Sydney!
So, take a moment out of your busy schedule and find your moment of Zen!
You are welcome to take a deep breath, leave the year behind and recharge for Christmas with Swedish Women in Sydney Association (SiS). All while soaking up the Swedish Lucia and Christmas atmosphere, catching up with old friends and meet new ones, over an Advent coffee in our pop-up café during SiS’s traditional Lucia celebration. We serve saffron buns and gingerbread, tea, and coffee, plus drinks for the little ones. Welcome to Swedish Lucia Celebration in Sydney!
Nothing smells more like Swedish Christmas than mulled wine. We will be serving mulled wine during the day.
NB! Bring cash – Cash Only.
We do it together! What? Swedish Lucia celebration in Sydney!
SiS Lucia is a wonderful opportunity to be a part of an old Swedish tradition and mingle amongst friends of all ages. Together we create loads of Swedish Christmas ambience with Christmas and Lucia songs.
PS! You may or may not be familiar with the concept of Lucia. If you are new to Lucia, find out all the essential information here Lucia – what is it? or just turn up on the day and experience Lucia firsthand. That is the best and most enjoyable way! Here, you can find more information on Swedish traditions, culture, and facts & figures.
We will have ring dancing around the Christmas tree for the little ones as well as the big kids (aka adults) led by the grand Queen of ring dancing in NSW – guaranteed superior results.
The children can try their luck at fishing in the fishpond. Lottery sale and great prizes.
If the weather permits, we will play games in the garden (adults and kids).
