December 13th     St. Lucia Day

I heard on the radio that today, December 13th is St. Lucia Day.  A radio talk show hostess says, On this day, some girls wear wreaths of burning candles on their heads. So be careful with the burning candles. J  Ive never seen the wreath of burning candles, but now I recall one of my Swedish friends, who lived in Mora (now lives in Stockholm), talked about this.

今日は、ラジオで、12月13日は、St. Lucia Dayと言うのを知りました。トーク ショーのホステスが、曰く、この日、女の子によっては、頭の上に、ろうそくのリースを飾ります。ろうそくの火は、あぶないので、特に、注意してね。J でも、スウェーデン系の人が、多いミネソタでも、まだ、このリースを見たことは、ありません。でも、そういえば、昔、スウェーデンの Moraに、住んでいたスウェーデンの友達が、このリースを、言っていたのを思い出しました。
