Advent Calendar, Day 12

In honour of the Feast of St. Lucia (although, it has just occurred to me that I am a day early with this). It is a holiday to celebrate not only St. Lucia, who was a martyr, but also the triumph of dark over light - and therefore a light in the darkness of winter. The Scandinavian cultures in particular have some very lovely traditions, and the above is based on that.
