Approximately 700 kayakers gathered on a Copenhagen canal earlier this month to celebrate St Lucia Day. Their kayaks were illuminated with festive string lights and luminous decor, creating a visual display that encompassed the festive spirit of the holidays.

Also known as the “Feast of Saint Lucy ”, St Lucia Day is a Christian feast day observed during the run-up to Christmas on December 13. “It’s a peaceful time,” said Lucia Parade organizer Gustavo Cordes.
