On December 13, 2020, the Lutheran church of Zelenogorsk, a suburb of St. Petersburg, remembered Saint Lucia, a Christian martyr (ca. 283 – ca. 303). This day is widely commemorated in Sweden and other countries. On that day, a girl who plays the role of St. Lucia (from Lat. lux = “light”) wears a wreath of lit candles on her head.
