The Embassy of Sweden and the Washington Harbour celebrated the holidays Saturday.
Winter on the Georgetown waterfront is very different this year: a once very quiet, empty space has come to life with a skating rink and winter holiday celebrations. Saturday the House of Sweden celebrated the holidays with a Christmas Bazaar and a St. Lucia choral presentation and precession. A group of women and girls dressed in white robes with red ribbons filled the crisp evening air with traditional songs. Later they processed to the Washington Harbour's new ice rink where families skated and took in the Winter on the Water celebration.
