Do you like music? Do you like cultural events? Do you like free things? Then look no further!

Welcome to the annual celebration of Lucia, hosted by UBC Scandinavian and Nordic Cultural Association (SNCA). But wait, what is Lucia?

Lucia is a traditional Nordic celebration of light and Saint Lucia, who the holiday is named after. While this holiday traditionally is held on the 13th of December we are celebrating it on the 2nd of December.

Essentially, Lucia is a musical performance. We will sing several Swedish Lucia-songs and serve coffee/tea, gingerbread and lussekatter (a type of sweet saffron bread).

Explore a tradition of another culture and enjoy this completely free performance! Bring your friends, your parents and your grandparents.

Where – MASS, Buchanan D
When – 2nd December 2011, 5pm
Cost – None, it’s FREE!
