Santa Lucia (Saint Lucy) Song

The Parenting Passageway has a good post on the December 13 festival of Saint Lucy/Santa Lucia called Santa Lucia Day in the Waldorf Home. In the post is an embedded link to the Swedish Santa Lucia song as well as a link to lyrics translated by Mama Lisa's World.

In my daughter's school, the song has been simplified to these few lines:

Now in the darkest night
Enter with candlelight
Santa Lucia! Santa Lucia!


For this blog, I sang the song twice on video:

YAy! Just found your blog via Parenting Passage. I'm off to browse. I need help in learning new songs!

Hello again...do you happen to have any spring songs to share...I have loved the gifts you offered on the blog as winter season songs. Thanks again!

Hi Angelina: I have been thinking about spring songs! I've gotten a bit caught up in the swing of work, and haven't done more than think. However, I'd like to get some May songs up before May Day. Thanks so much for the nudge.
