Hello readers! Willow here. A while ago Mummy went to Romania, remember? And, she brought something special back for us dollies, a Romanian dress! It also works as a Santa Lucia dress! Santa Lucia is a Scandinavian holiday – to find out more look at http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/517701/St-Lucias-Day.
Here’s the dress, finally revealed!
Natten går tunga fjät/rund gård och stuva; (Night walks with a heavy step/Round yard and hearth;)
kring jord, som sol förlät/skuggorna ruva. (As the sun departs from earth/Shadows are brooding.)
Då i vårt mörka hus/stiger med tända ljus, (There in our dark house/Walking with lit candles,)
Sankta Lucia, Sankta Lucia! (Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!)
Now, let’s take a look at the dress:
The dress is red and white with puffy sleeves. You can adjust how tight it can be and there’s some decorative lace. It’s not a real Santa Lucia outfit and I don’t have a glowing Santa Lucia crown, but it’s not too bad. Grandmummy says that it’s probably traditionally Romanian. Wouldn’t it be so lovely to lounge around all day in this dress? I wouldn’t mind living in Romania…
Sankta Lucia, Sankta Lucia!
Have a nice Saturday!!!
