A VERY MUSTARD XMAS #13 | happy lucia

comments 6


welcome to A VERY MUSTARD CHRISTMAS – an advent calendar in the shape of early morning videos, with one new episode every single morning up until christmas !

that’s right, we’ve taken on the almost epic challenge of creating one video for each of the first 24 days of december. we must be crazy. our mission – to serve you up a cup of the most christmasy sweet and cozy videos we could think of, with everything from christmas movies, holiday book tips, yummy vegan christmas food and sweet treats, and tips on how to survive consumerist mayhem as a minimalist.

this episode is about the ( kind of weird ) swedish tradition of celebrating st lucia – the bringer of light. we march kids around in a ‘lucia train’, we drink mulled wine and eat safron buns at 7am, and we dress adults in white nightgowns and glitter. yep, it’s the best !

my advent calendar’s got it all. 24 little christmas spirit bringing videos to make you feel good and start the day with all them jinglebell-feelings. we hope that you’ll love watching them as much as we’ve loved making them.

if you did like this video and the idea of a video advent calendar, it would mean the world to me if you’d give me a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel. and maybe write me a little xmas-feeling filled comment !

love // jenny

  1. In Italy (but only in Milan’s region) we celebrate Lucia as well! The tradition says that Lucia comes at night on her donkey bringing gifts, so all the kids have to put a candle and a carrot outside their window. The candle is used by Lucia to recognize where the kids live so she could leaves theirs presents there and the carrot is for the donkey (he’s hungry ’cause he has to deliver gifts all night long) =) So strange that Italy and Sweden are the only countries that celebrate this day.

  2. I love your vlogmas series! It’s so amazing to wake up to your favourite youtuber all the time ♥ by the way, could you please do a video on how you learned to listen to your body again and work with it instead of working against it? I’m so inspired by the attitude you have towards yourself and your health but I find it very difficult to practise it myself as I struggled with disordered eating habits, restricting and generally being very insecure and controlled about my body. I’m all good now health wise but mentally it’s quite difficult sometimes. Some tips would be very appreciated. And pleae please never stop making videos, I love them!

  3. I live in the United States, but I was Saint Lucia one year for a chorus group performance. I had completely forgotten about this event until your post brought back the memories. Such a cute and charming tradition.
