Saint Lucy Day breakfast instead of Julebord

Tonight is ‘Julebord‘ night, the traditional Norwegian Xmas dinner/party with work, though I am not joining 🙁 (first time since I moved to Norway). I did have another event today to compensate for it; the celebration/breakfast of Saint Lucy’s Day at kindergarten this morning!

It was Misha’s first and he too took part in the Saint Lucy ceremony. All children were following ‘Saint Lucia’ (one of the kids who was elected to head the procession), and wearing a white gown/shirt, silver belt and crown describing the light with which Lucia overcomes the (Scandinavian) darkness. A really nice experience despite the early wake-up call (05:55h)…WAY too early for both father and son! 😉 Misha took a hit because of this and got a slight fever in the afternoon…so, daddy is home tonight with a not too well feeling little Saint Lucy angel.
