Conexo Travel Advent Blog
Day Twenty Two
The Swedish capital Stockholm puts on many festivals, markets and events to celebrate Christmas. The build up begins with the festival of Lucia, a tradition which is traced back to St Lucia of Syracuse, a martyr who died in AD304, as well as Swedish legend of Lucia as Adam’s first wife.
As Christmas draws neaer ice skating (Kungstradgarden) and Christmas markets take centre stage in Stockholm and Swedish Christmas food becomes available – the “julbord”, the Christmas buffet, is a must!
Every day in December the Conexo Travel blog will share a festive travel image to help get you in the Christmas mood. We call it the our Advent photo blog. Follow it every day in December.
