Danish christmas tradition

Christmas in Denmark; dinner – pork, duck, goose or turkey, red salad, glazed potatoes, a lot of brown sauce. Dessert – rice pudding containing lots of almonds in pieces and one whole – (the finder receive a gift). Now time for singing Christmas songs and psalms while holding hands and walk around the Christmas tree. Finally the presents from under the tree is given, and the restored peace are celebrated with coffee, candy and something strong in the small glasses.
Merry Christmas!

julebryg tuborg

Merry Christmas and
happy TUB´year…
The humorous message is based on the fact that the pronunciation of “org” and the word år (year) sounds similar in Danish.

Godt – nyt – år (good – new – year) is changed to Godt – tub – org (good – Tuborg), in other words, enjoy a good beer and have a happy new year.

The slogan, made by Peter Wibroe, have been used for more than 30 years, and we still love it.
