Torchlight procession in December

Published: 3 December 2018

Early on Monday morning, students, employees and passers-by could listen to Christmas Carlos and have a cup of hot coffee and saffron buns, something that many gratefully received this dark December morning.

Each morning in December, outdoor candles are lit at Luleå University of Technology in Kiruna, Skellefteå, Piteå and Luleå. This will allow students and staff to feel extra welcome to the job and lessons during the darkest days of the year.

On December 3,  by tradition,  a torchlight procession, singing Christmas carols, takes place along Regnbågsallén in Luleå and the university serve saffron buns and hot coffe. 200 students and staff came this year to listen to Christmas carols and to have coffee. The coffee was hot, the saffron buns freshly baked and the Christmas songs incredibly nice.

There were probably many who, thanks to this, got a good start to the week's last working day or school day and they were reminded that it soon will be Christmas and therefore soon will be brighter days.

Birgitta Bergvall-Kåreborn, Vice-Chancellor at Luleå University of Technology, was also there, to listen to Christmas carols and to have a coffe outdoors this early morning, together with students and staff. In Kiruna, Skellefteå and Piteå, staff and students could  also have coffee and buns.
