Sweden has its first moslim girl as Lucia-maiden

Pictures attached in this article comes from one of Swedish christian congregations Lucia-celebration, from last Thursday.
Congregation is very open-minded so the girl chosen to play Lucia maiden’s part is a muslim. Girl is using headscarf like muslims do.

How nice does this headscarf go together with Lucia maidens candles.
Two religions of peace connected in universal way. There is a lot love and tolerance. There were couple of more 10 years old veiled girls in this ceremony. This shows great broad-mindless. Veiled 10-year old muslim girl goes so nice as main character in festivities at christian congregation.

Let us hope that this warm hearted caring of people spreads to Finnish congregations as well.
