Sankta Lucia, the tradition that went back from the cold


Once again, the Nordic Christmas came back in the center of Rome (on the evening of December 11th, two days before the date marked on the calendar for the celebration of the most important winter celebration in Sweden). During the evening the choir came out of a doorway in Piazza di Pietra, in the city center, performing Swedish festive songs included, as tradition dictates, that famous "Sankta Lucia" which has Italian origins.
