Saint Lucia’s Day was originally a church feast day dedicated to Lucia of Syracuse (died.304), also known as Saint Lucy, and is observed on 13 December. Apart from the Lucia, there are stjärngossar (star boys), “tomtenissar”; and gingerbread men and of course Staffan Stalledräng Saint Stephen, the first Christian martyr, caring for his five horses.
More interestingly, in modern times the Lucia day has become a reason to DRINK!
And last, but not least, is our dear Banana Hammock FOYW :(
“It’s time to say good-buy to you and the (sometimes) lovely blue skies of Beijing.
Time flies and I’m leaving next week already.
As many of you are in stress to finish X-Mas shopping, joining other X-Mas Partys or also flying out….I fully understand that it will be hard for you if I would force you to show up for another event…
So-keep it simple and easy!
I highly appreciate if you can make it to come to the HHH # 1625 The Lucia Run and later sing me a propper FOYW song in the circle. If you can’t make it to the run and for all the other late comers- FOYW drinks will be drank in the in the bar/restaurant of the sunday Hash”
