Good morning.....It's Saint Lucia Day. I have our breakfast table set and as soon as the kids wake up we are going to make our Lussekatter ("Lucy Cats") or Saffron buns for our little Swedish celebration. On the table is a traditional Lucia wreath that I was planning on having Abby wear this morning along with full St. Lucia costume along with Henry wearing a star boy costume but sadly I ran out of time this year and I couldn't pull it off...oh, well maybe next year. I also have one of my Yule goats, 2 Dala horses, a star boy hat and several Swedish Tomten. I can't wait to see their little faces when they come down the stairs. Today is going to be all about Sweden, where my great grandmother was born. I have some wonderful books to share with the kids as well as a few traditional crafts and maybe a few other surprises!
Because we are planning to make our Lussekatter this morning I borrowed a photo from the web until I can replace it with one of my own, but for now I wanted you to see what we will be making and share the recipe.
