The name Lucia comes from the Latin word “lucius”, which means shining. The name Lussi comes from old stories. People ate a “lussebit” to protect themselves from evil spirits. They believed that you had to eat something evil to get rid of it.
Why aren’t the buns black since we eat Lussi’s cat? Yellow is a symbol of the light and the sun. The yellow color comes from the spice saffron which is yellow.
