It is one of the most relaxing times of the year that we give a break for daily life struggles and duties. I am going to Istanbul today to spend the holiday with my family and friends. It will be so nice catching up with them, feeling the coziness of being home, eating good food, and visiting new places in the city.
It is Santa Lucia day today! According to the Scandinavian tradition, Saint Lucia is coming down to earth on this day with light and candies. As a celebration on the 13th of December, girls wear long white dresses on that day and they hold candles while they are singing Lucia songs. Lussekatter is a special pastry for this day. I bought a ready mix and baked it at home for the first time.
