This Sunday, Freek and I went to Aalborg to attend Santa Lucia on water. In Denmark, we traditionally celebrate Santa Lucia on the 13th of December. Young girls dress up in white gowns and walk in long processions while singing the Santa Lucia song. They carry burning candlelights in their hands and the bride, the girl in front, wears a crown with four lights on her head.
But Lucia in kayak is something different. Here everybody can attend and instead of burning candles, which would be unpractical on the water, we use electrical, battery-powered lights.
We had brought two kayaks from Aarhus and after visiting my sister, we went to the harbor to entangle the kayaks in light chains.
