Santa Lucia

This morning we celebrated Santa Lucia (Swedish Holiday-supposed to be on the 13th). Family Tradition, few nights before Christmas, where my mom wakes us up at about 6am or just while its still dark and brings us downstairs around the dining room table for a Swedish Breakfast. She then tells us the story of Santa Lucia while we eat our Breakfast, this year and typically always it consists of Eggs, Oranges, Other Fruit, Bacon, sausage, Hash browns, Orange Rolls, Egg Nog, Hot Chocolate, Orange Juice, chocolate Santas, of course Swedish Pancakes (pictured above). Theres always spinning candles on the table and Swedish music in the background, and My mom always wears her white Santa Lucia dress and candles on her head while we just stay in pajamas. The tradition explaining the candles, the dress, and the dark all revolve around the story.

Swedish Pancakes
1 cup Flour
1/2 t salt
1/4 cup sugar
