Around a hundred people took part in the celebration of Lucia at the Swedish Residence on Thursday, 9 of December. Ambassador Ingemar Dolfe warmly welcomed all the Sweden-friends and described how the celebration of St. Lucia is traditionally carried out in Sweden.
       First-rate entertainment was provided in the form of melodious choral singing by the Swedish Women’s Associations’ Lucia procession. A majority of the Singaporean guests had never seen a Lucia procession before, and many were both impressed and somewhat moved by the striking ambience created by the choir.
       During the mingle following the Lucia procession, Swedish Christmas delicacies were served.
