Breakfast in Bed

Martha Stewart Kids

In Sweden, the holiday season begins on December 13 with the celebration of Lucia (the name means "light"). To mark the holiday, kids wake at dawn to deliver breakfast to their parents in bed, or, accompanied by an adult, to hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and workplaces. Traditionally, they wear or carry candles to illuminate the dark winter morning, but candles can be omitted. Adults, weary from holiday shopping, will appreciate the gesture.
