Espoo's Saint Lucy is visiting the Learning Centre on 14 December, at 4pm

Saint Lucy's Day is celebrated as a memorial to the legend of Saint Lucy on December 13th every year. The celebration originates from the Catholic church, but today it is celebrated mainly in Swedish-speaking culture.

Traditionally, a girl elected to portray Lucy, is dressed in white clothes, a red belt and wearing a crown of candles on her head and holding a candle in her hand. The idea is that Lucia (lat. Lux, light) brings light to the darkness of winter.

There's a chance to participate to a charity fundraising.
