Santa Lucia comes to William Ransom

William Ransom has been celebrating the festival of Santa Lucia for as long as I can remember – and that’s a long time!

On the 13th December every year we follow the Swedish Tradition and have our own Santa Lucia who visits us all in assembly and hands out Peperkaka biscuits for all the children. It is based on a story told to the Swedes hundreds of years ago by Monks spreading the word of Christianity. It is an Italian story and tells of Lucia who took food and drink to the Christians hiding from persecution in the catacombs below Rome.

It is a lovely tradition to have and one we hope will continue for many years.
