Saint Lucia's Day
We began celebrating the Feast of Saint Lucy early on, but The Daughter was obstinate and never enjoyed taking her part in it -except for eating the sweet rolls, of course. I always ended up dressing in white and serving the coffee and sweet rolls, which is the place of the oldest daughter. She would have none of it. I never understood her objection. I finally gave our battery-powered candle head-piece to The Elder Son, because he really liked it while The Daughter steadfastly refused to wear it. Ah, well, such is life. Not everything you try will be a hit with the whole family. The breakfast sweet rolls were a hit with the whole family, and that was good enough for me.
We've tried several different sweet roll recipes through the years in addition to trying sweet rolls from various bakeries and pre-packaged ones. We like them all.
The picture at the top of the post is by Carl Larsson and is from 1908.
Oh, and I don't dress up in white anymore. The sweet rolls have always been center-stage, after all.
