Lucia celebration Dec. 10

Presented by the Delaware Swedish Colonial Society, the annual Sankta Lucia celebration will be held at 1 pm and 3 pm Dec. 10, 2023 in the historic 1699 Old Swedes Church.

St. Lucia, the bringer of light, is celebrated with song and ceremony in the candlelit church. A beloved Swedish tradition, it marks the beginning of the holiday season.
