Swedish St Lucia Day NY/NJ/PA

Does any one know of any St Lucia Day events for this year scheduled around December 13?

In searching the web, it seems as though many have already occurred, which doesn't help. Is it true that Ulrika's in NYC has closed, as they served good Swedish food.

Lucia fest at the candle-lit Gloria Dei (Old Swede's) Church in Philadelphia is a charming presentation and procession by (mainly) the children of the congregation, with even three years olds singing in Swedish. The finale is the procession of the young women, in white robes, singing, with one carrying her tray, wearing a wreath of candles on her head.

Don't fprget to do some shopping and snacking afterwards.

Also in Philadelphia, the American Swedish Historical Museum has scheduled a Lucia celebration for December 5.

Aquavit, a very fine restaurant has a special St. Lucia day brunch
Sunday 13 Dec
St. Lucia, Julbord brunch with live singing performances from our Lucia choir. Julbord is the highlight of traditional Scandinavian cuisine - a traditional Smorgasbord brunch with favorites such as herring, gravlax and Swedish meatballs, topped with our holiday specialties. $65.

The Trinity Luheran Church in New York City has a wonderful Saint Lucia candle light service every year. The date varies but is usually around the 13th. You have to get tickets so you should contact the church before going, although I was able to get tickets at the door the night of the performance because some people had cancelled.
There is also a Saint Lucia celebration at the VASA Park Hall in Budd Lake NJ every year.
