A special Lucia celebration
The bad weather didn’t stop 94-year-old Greta Malm from being Lucia on Friday afternoon. She had never before had the honor of leading the Luciatåg (Lucia train), but her dream finally came true. “It was fun and nerve-racking, an experience for me. I'm so glad I get to experience this while I'm alive,” she said. At Åkershem nursing home in Borlänge, a group of residents had the Luciatåg with preschool children for the community, including Birgit Robertson, 90, who likes to be a tomte when she can. “I have shared many pats and hugs over the years. You have to be a child at heart,” she said.
