A TRADITIONAL Swedish holiday celebration of Santa Lucia (St. Lucy) took place on Dec. 17 in Garden Grove at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church. The event, presented by the local Evening Star Lodge, featured the annual pageant for girls and boys to honor the saint. At center, with her crown of lights, is this year’s “Lucia,” Sara DeLaurenti, 13, of Huntington Beach. She is flanked by some of her “Lucia Maidens.”
