St. Lucia Day is a family Advent tradition in Scandinavia and Italy. These crowns are worn by girls as part of their celebration of St. Lucy.
In Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, and Italy, Santa Lucia Day is part of the Advent season. On Santa Lucia (St. Lucy’s) Day, December 13, the eldest girl in the family wears a candle-lit crown, a white robe, and a red sash. She represents a medieval saint, Lucia, who carried food and drink to the hungry in Italy. Often families sing "Santa Lucia" and eat holiday treats.
Find Europe and the countries that celebrate Santa Lucia’s kind deeds on a world map. Research more about the foods and activities during this joyous holiday tradition in Advent. Prepare a sparkling picture of Santa Lucia to show what you learned. Here’s one way to create Lucia wearing a crown.
Use Crayola Gel Markers to draw a female face on black construction paper. On top of her head draw several white candles.
With Crayola Color Explosion™ paper and a color-reveal marker, draw and color leaves to form Lucia’s crown and imitation candle flames. Cut out the leaves and flames with Crayola Scissors. Glue them on the picture with Crayola School Glue.
Decorate the crown with Crayola Glitter Glue. Add sparkle to the top of your candles to make them look as if they were lit. Let the festivities begin!
