I don't know if you know about the St Lucia tradition we've here in  
Sweden. Short story:
Take young people, dress them up in white sheets and if you're a male  
put a stupid hat on, not much unlike the hat used by some infamous  
traditions in Texas. (BAD AND UNNECESSARY JOKE, but it have scared a  
lot of people when we try to do this outside Sweden.) or you may  
dress up as Santas helpers. And if you're a gal put some candles on  
your head and, boom, your the Queen of Light.

Of course all cities have there own voted Queen of Light and every  
kindergarten host events like this. Idas' is no exception. And as I,  
Anna and our friends object to this objectification of kids we  
decided that Ida would not be another Lucia. Instead we made her a  
ginger-cake-lady dress.

I've put up some photos on my flikr-account. http://www.flickr.com/

Have a look. /Johan
