Prøv vores juleboller – “Try our Christmas buns” the bakers poster say. All right, you don´t need to ask twice, I like the Christmas pastry, containing raisins, candied peel (sukat) and other sweet things. The only complicated matter about a Christmas bun, is that it has to be renamed after Christmas.

December 13 is the day for the Saint Lucy procession, and this song.

As promised, I continue looking for Christmas decorations and spirit outside, to show the cosy Denmark we have heard so much about. I will let you know when I find something to talk about. Until then, you have to do with these photos, showing modest hints of something special going on. It is valued to be modest in Denmark, but I don´t think anyone would complain if the level of decoration was a bit higher. Let´s see, there are still 13 days to Christmas, and time to be surprised.

There are not much Christmas decorations to find outside, perhaps people have become too busy to care about such. Even the  Nisseland have lost its usual size, and have even been moved to a smaller place at the shopping center. But, one can always go to the hotdog stand, to seek comfort and enjoy a meal under his nice Christmas lights.

I didn´t find much Christmas outside today, so lets focus on the Christmas darkness. We are getting close to the shortest day of the year. Todays sun rise/set 8:26 am  –  3:38pm

With so many dark hours, it´s good to have a canon or two in the back yard – just in case. They seem to like that idea at the Kronborg castle.

I think we need something to eat now, after all these Nisser. Christmas lunch. December is a busy month in many ways, one of them is all the festive Christmas lunches one have to attend. At work, with family, with friends, with every group one is connected to. A Christmas lunch is as a matter of course. First dish is all kind of Herring and snaps – a 30 – 40 percent alcoholic drink. In small glass, – to empty in one try.

There are extra busses and trains to bring people safely home!
