Years and years ago, my husband’s family had an exchange student, Malin, from Sweden (when he and I were teenagers and were dating). Malin told us all about St. Lucia Day and showed us photos of her little sister and herself dressed all in white to celebrate the holiday. It was fascinating to learn about the holidays and celebrations that people in other countries observe.
