Sankta Lucia at Vipan

The annual candlelit Lucia procession on 13 December is perhaps one of the more exotic-looking Swedish customs, with girls and boys clad in white full-length gowns singing songs together. Among the youngest, anyone can be Lucia; as the children get older, the competition will harden. At our school we always celebrate Lucia on December 13th. Today went Lucia 08:45 and it was completely dark outside.

Text

The night goes with weighty step
round yard and (stove i.e. house, hearth?)
round earth, the sun departs
leave the woods brooding
There in our dark house,
appears with lighted candles
Saint Lucia, Saint Lucia.

The night goes great and mute
now hear it swings
in every silent room
murmurs as if from wings.
Look at our threshold stands
white-clad with lights in her hair
Saint Lucia, Saint Lucia.

The darkness shall soon depart
from the earth’s valleys
thus she speaks
a wonderful word to us
The day shall rise anew
from the rosy sky.
Saint Lucia, Saint Lucia.

The silver star shines on the sea,
The waves are calm, the wind is favorable
Come to my quick little boat!
Santa Lucia! Santa Lucia!

With this west wind so gentle,
Oh, how wonderful it is to be at sea!
Come passengers, come away!
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!

Oh sweet Naples, oh blessed sun,
where creation wished to smile!
You are the command of harmony!
Santa Lucia! Santa Lucia!

Now why do you delay? The evening is beautiful
A cool and light wind is blowing
Come to my quick little boat!
Santa Lucia!Santa Lucia!

Outreach UF – Our first activity of recently immigrated young boys from Afghanistan

Outreach UF is an organization that works with young people newly arrived to Sweden. Our goal is to form community and acceptance of these young people by doing various activities and competitions. We will organize various activities in which young people have choices to what activities they want to do.

We organized a first meeting here in the school, between students from the school and recently immigrated young boys from Afghanistan. We talked, ate pizza and socialized. We are planning many activities together with them in the coming weeks. They should not feel alone at Christmas.
