The Lucia bride needs a crown!



These metal Lucia crowns are from SGSAB. You can choose 
between two models: Seven or five candles. I don't think they have
'the-one-candle-model' that Findus wears on the illustration below...




 This lovely Lucia crown fits children from age 1 to 5  years
It is from Oskar & Ellen - Purchase it, as well as candle, here




...and it is time to sing 'Sankta Lucia'!

So lovely! Thank you for this post. Is the number of candles in the St. Lucia crown significant in any way?

Yes, Snippa...these are the "safe Lucia crowns" ;O)

Mrs. Pinkerton, hmmmm, well I really don't know...I read that 'in the old days' the Swedish Lucia brides most often had 5-6 candles in their crowns...today it is often 5 or 7. In Denmark it is 4 or 6 candles (and here in Denmarl the crown is made from fir and not lingonberry leaves, like in Sweden)....

I'd love to find a metal Lucia crown but the website is in Swedish! Anyone have info on a website that I can understand? Thanks!
