Saint Lucia´s Day 2012 (UPDATED)

Myself as Saint Lucio in 2011
Today is the traditional Swedish day of Saint Lucia, the lady who gives us a promise that light will return in our deepest winter darkness. Unfortunately it seems that there will not be a celebration at the Swedish Embassy in SecondLife this year, and I have been too sick to even think about stepping in as Saint Lucio.

This is the first time in five years I miss out on this event. However do I know there is a Lucia pageant at the Yadkin Valley (SLurl) sim today at 12:30 PM SLT.

Usually Second Norway also has a Lucia pageant, but I don't have any information for that event either as yet.

I would love it and be grateful, if any other Lucia-pageant in SecondLife, would post the SLurls and times for their pageants in the comments.

UPDATE:
It seems like the only Swedes reading my blog these days are Apmel, Millimina and Vampi so I have been checking some of the other Swedish SecondLife blogs for tips myself. So far I have found this.

1. From the Nordic Events - Second Life blog
The Lucia Masquerade-Party at the Avalon Club 01 PM SLT.
Alfdeejay plays Christmas music and takes requests. You are welcome to dress up as Lucia or something else that is "christmasy" for the outfit-contest. http://slurl.com/secondlife/Kalvatar/56/99/22

2. From Vampi Twine-DeSantis-McMillan-McMillan (honorary) comment below:
At Ormdricka we kick off at 12.30 slt (21.30 swed time) and DJ Tiddles will play some suitable music for the occasion.
You can dress up in anything lucia if you want but thats up to you - its not a must.
Santa lent us his sled for you to get here:)---> Take Santa´s sled to OrmDricka

Surprisingly the Second Norway blog doesn´t list a Lucia pageant this year, nor does Connemara Hills.

  1. But we sort of do.....As it is Lucia today we are doing a little informal Lucia celebration at Club OD. Yes there will be a lucia, maiden and starboy on the stage (we twisted the staffs arms a bit) but no lucia train as such - they will just be stading there :)

  2. I think you would make a fabulous Saint Lucia. Now I have to go to wiki to find out what it is :)
