Gray “potatoes holiday”-day

All the schools are closed this week, because of the yearly autumn-holiday or “Potatoes holiday”. This holiday are always in week number 42 (we are using week numbers, I understand that it isn´t common everywhere?) and originally made to make it possible for the school children to work at the farms with collecting potatoes. Today the potatoes holiday are a week full of entertainments for kids or holidays far away from Danish potatoes. For the ones that stayed at home, this was the sight of day 4.

    Ooh I love to learn about how things are in Denmark. This is wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing. I’m loving all your fall pictures, but I also love the stories that go with the pictures.

    And I thought we had strange holidays. Our kids get off school the Monday after Thanksgiving because it’s the first day of deer hunting season. Why is THAT worth a day off school???
