Abstract Am Vorabend des 13. Dezember kleiden sich zwei Frauen und ein Mädchen als Luzien an (2 schwarze und 1 weiße Luzia) und betreten eine Wohnstube, in der Kinder auf einer Eckbank sitzen. Die Luzien sagen einen Spruch auf und drohen den Kindern. Ihre Requisiten sind: Sichel und Wetzstein sowie ein Gefäß mit einem Holzlöffel.
In the area of Cham (Upper Palatinate) a bogy appears at the eve of Dec. 13th, the day of Saint Lucia, which is called "Luzia" or "Luzl". About the year 1930 this custom was still practised in the whole of north-east Bavaria especially by the farm workers. "Luzia" threatens to rip up the children's stomachs with her sickle and to fill them with bricks. Today this figure is widely rejected because of its negative effects on the children's minds.
