Candle Lighting December 1

Published: 4 December 2015

December 1 has become a fine tradition at Luleå University of Technology. Then then all the lights on the avenue on campus in Luleå, are lit and every passerby offered saffron buns, a cup of tea or coffee and hot morning greetings.

Every morning, throughout December and at the start of the semester in January, torches are lit along the avenue at Luleå University of Technology. It's the darkest time of the year, and just then, staff and students are welcomed by this lighted walkway, each morning.

Since a few years ago, 1 December means a particularly enjoyable morning, that is very much appreciated. All who wants, are served coffee or tea and saffron buns. Additionally the Snapsacademy, marches with torches singing Christmas carols - how cozy isn´t that. And on this particualry day, this year, large snowflakes fell, was just a fluke
