On Saturday, December 5 at 4 p.m. the community is invited to Weston's Old Parish Church to hear a performance of seasonal music by Nordic Harmoni, a Scandinavian-American chorus of over 20 voices, whose Sankta Lucia Pageants and other local performances have been extremely popular ever since the group's formation in 2001.
The program will include seasonal Christmas songs, a brief Sankta Lucia Pageant, as well as a community sing-a-long of traditional Christmas carols with a short walk to the town green for the tree lighting.
There will be refreshments consisting of Lussekatter (Swedish buns) and Pepparkakor (Swedish gingerbread cookies) and apple cider.
An interesting history of the event can be found at www.sweden.se/eng/Home/Lifestyle/Traditions/Celebrating-the-Swedish-way/Lucia/.
There is no specified cost to attend and participate; any free-will offerings will be accepted.
