The 2017 Abu Dhabi Lucia Celebrations

Tonight it was time for one of the winter season highlights here in Abu Dhabi, the yearly Lucia celebration at the Ambassador's residence. Glögg, lussebullar, gingerbread biscuits... YUM!

It was the forth time for us, and the evening followed pretty much the same program as previous years, with Swedish Christmas goodies and a bit of a mingle before the Lucia procession. Since the summer we now have a new Ambassador though, and he had new Christmas lights! Very pretty!

Preparations were done upstairs as per usual:


The Ambassador introduced himself and gave a brief explanation to the history of, and the reason we celebrate Lucia.

Then there they were..!

Lucas found a new friend, so a good night had by all.

 Thank you so much, for another lovely Lucia evening!
