St. Lucia was a Christian martyr who was killed by the Romans in 304 CE for her beliefs.
For the festivities, each town selects a person to be St. Lucia to lead a procession to make the beginning of the Christmas season. She is followed by young girls and boys dressed in white singing traditional songs.
