In Scandinavian countries, the Feast of Saint Lucy on Dec. 13 is a widely popular celebration when girls dress in white robes and wear crowns of candles to honor the martyred saint. And Dec. 12 is usually a big party. The House of Sweden is bringing both traditions to Washington this weekend: The party mixes the traditional Lucia procession with DJs and dancing, an open bar, Swedish hors d'oeuvres and a rooftop bar offering mulled wine and gingersnaps along with great views of the Potomac. Last year's sold-out party brought out a festive international crowd, so you should definitely put the black-tie-optional soiree on your to-do list. No tickets will be sold at the door. VIP tickets include early entry for a champagne reception with live jazz.
