Swedish Xmas Fair, L.A. (video)

Amber Larson, Kelly Yanni, Ashley Wells, Wisdom Quarterly

Sweden is famous for more than IKEA
(SWEA) December is the time for SWEA, the Los Angeles Annual Swedish Christmas Fair. Scandinavian artisans, Sankta Lucia (candlelight) dancers, and vendor stands present the best of Sweden: fine art, tchochkes, jewelry, toys, Christmas collectibles, and much more.

Sankta Lucia, from Italy, is honored in Scandinavia with light and dance
Traditionell Lucia -- och ändå fick man hålla i hatten.
Kris has a bad helper, Krampus
All are invited to enjoy an authentic Swedish lunch or fika (coffee) and home baked sweets or maybe an invigorating glass of hot virgin Glögg. The radiant Lucia pageant and her choir performs twice, at noon and again at 3:00 pm. Children have their own fun corner. This fair will set kids, Krampus, Kris Kringle, and cruddy grandparents in the mood for the holidays!
Like Sami-inspired bhumi-devis ("earthbound beings of light"),
legacy Christian singers celebrate St. Lucia in Mora, Sweden.
