Time Out says

If you loved Midsommar, you'll get a kick out of the annual St. Lucia Festival of Lights in Andersonville. The Swedish-inspired celebration begins with a procession down Clark Street at 4:45pm (stepping off in front of the Swedish American Museum) featuring a group of white-robed Lucia Girls who wear crowns topped with candles. The celebration continues at the Chicago Waldorf School, where guests will learn about the legend of St. Lucia while enjoying traditional Swedish snacks, including pepparkakor ginger cookies.
