Dear Bill and Adolph,
When we now approaching Christmas I like to send you greetings from our club to all fellow rotarians in your club.
The picture below is showing our annual celebrating Lucia which we have done now many years.
To celebrate Lucia is an old and popular tradition here in Sweden. It is done by youths with candles in white housings singing popular Christmas songs.
The Lucia date is today, allways december 13 and all swedes loves this ceremony. Especially then it is dark and cold outdoors.
So I hope you send on our greetings of Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you.
