Sweden Ambassador to Bangladesh Charlotta Schlyter and her spouse Brian Gorlick hosted a reception on Monday night.

The Lucia reception, one of the most foremost cultural Swedish traditions, was held at Edge Gallery at Bay's Edgewater in Gulshan 2 of the capital.

Lucia is an ancient mythical figure with an abiding role as a bearer of light in the dark Swedish winters.

It is an old tradition to celebrate Lucia all over Sweden. As part of it, Sweden Embassy in Dhaka organised the celebration.

Diplomats, journalists and political leaders, among others, were present on the occasion.
