Flying Start @ Redruth Learn About Swedish Festival of Santa Lucia!

The children at Flying Start @ Redruth haven’t just been thinking about how we celebrate the Christmas holidays here in England… but have been busy learning about Santa Lucia which is a festival celebrated in Sweden!

The children learned all about the Santa Lucia traditions, and then had ago themselves! They made their very own candle crowns to wear…

Then they made their own ginger biscuits and iced them…

  

And then had a delicious snack based on the festival, enjoying their homemade ginger biscuits, and some saffron buns – which are both celebration foods enjoyed in Sweden!

What an amazing festival to learn about and celebrate, all the way from Sweden!
