Strange Danish behaviour around New Year

I´ve just heard from CNN that Danes enjoy themself at New year eve by throwing dishes at the frontdoor of their neighbors, – an act that are supposed to mean friendship *1)  If you should ever be celebrating a New Year here, do not try to make friends by throwing dishes, you will get a very lonely evening, and a lot of enemies.

If you avoid the temptation of throwing your dishes, and instead of this decide to use them for a New Year menu, don´t make   “Kale with sprinkled sugar and cinnamon with white sauce”, *2) people will use any excuse to leave your party, and you´ll have to eat it all by yourself. Bon appetite.


Marzipan ring cake and champagne  is a must at 12 o´clock.  That is for sure.

Happy New Year

I wish all of you a very happy and healthy new year, I will be looking  forward to read about it in your blogs. Thank you for all the wonderful comments you have send me.

See you in 2011.
