St Lucia's Day: A First

Today I had my very first Lucia bun to celebrate St. Lucia's Day
and it was very good!
Actually it was such a LARGE bun that I shared 1/2 with my friend.
Next year I will try to make them myself but I was happy to FINALLY find some and
didn't mind the trip to get them at all. After all, I've traveled all the way to Astoria to get fabulous fattigman cookies and Finnish pinwheel pastries,
and I've traveled all the way to Bend to say goodbye to a favorite niece and hug an aspen tree:)
Several of my favorite bloggers have posted recipes/info on Lucia buns:
Anne (Sweden)
L-Jay (Norway)
Both of these ladies have AMAZING blogs by the way!
Another first--
only slightly related to St. Lucia's Day 2012 is...
I recently did something I told myself I would NEVER do.
Do you know what it was?
Advent Blessings
Happy St. Lucia's Day

That bun looks yummy! There is nothing better than fresh baked yeast bread.

I hope you have a very happy holiday, Aimee. We might even get a snowflake or two if we are lucky. I'm curious...what did you do? Something fun I hope.

Hi, Cathy!
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas too Cathy and thank you for all the wonderful recipes you so generously share!

Regarding snow---I SO hope we get more!

LOL. To answer your question...the itsy bitsy clue was the photo in this post. I finally bought a smartphone and used it to take that photo (instead of using my Nikon). My son says I should have listened to him and bought one years ago--he's very wise:)

Blessings always,
