13th of December Christmas tag/DT StampARTic

Hello everyone

To day I am doing a blog post for StampARTic

11 days left to Christmas eve.
My little daughter is so excited, so she has embellished the hole house already.
 I think it is to early, but she is only five years young.

I have made this tag with Graphic 45 papers.
 It is 2 tags in this tag so yoy can write a greeting.


St. Lucia Day is a holiday that is held on December 13 in several countries in Europe. Those countries include SwedenDenmark,Norway, and Finland. The holiday is in honor of Saint Lucy. On this day, young girls (mostly the oldest daughter of the house) dress like Saint Lucia in a white robe and a crown of candles. There are parades, pageants, and the girl playing Lucia serves cakes. They also sing special songs. Here is one of the songs:

The night treads heavily
around yards and dwellings
In places unreached by sun,
the shadows brood
Into our dark house she comes,
bearing lighted candles,
Saint Lucia, Saint Lucia.

The Lucia celebrations also include ginger snaps and sweet, saffron-flavoured buns (lussekatter) shaped like curled-up cats and with raisin eyes. People eat them with glögg or coffee.
