A quick post for now, because I’m packing. Last night I attended a St. Lucia Concert in Lund with my two Swedish friends, whose daughter Sophia was performing. We had perfect second row seats after Roland waited in line (fighting off a crowd of 350, what a nice guy). Plus I have a new-found interest in Swedish folk and Christmas music! More on St. Lucia’s Day.
I mostly just wanted to share this picture. Pay no attention to the men’s costumes in the back. They do look suggestive of a particular cult, but I was told that it represents “St. Stephen, a stable boy.”
Afterwards, we ate excellent Lebanese food and walked through Lund one last time. A perfect Swedish night of music and company.
