I love the mix of old glass baubles and handmade things made by different people, in different styles. Woven paper hearts, tiny sewn stockings, cross stitched cones. Ornaments made from beads, made by my grandma.
Now this, this is a tradition! Every year the “Disneys Juleshow” is on telly. It’s basically little bits from old Disney films and there are sometimes snippets of upcoming ones too. It’s mainly for kids, but it’s a tradition, so I had to watch it, right? ;-)
Making marzipan. Some colourful. Some with chocolate. Some with fancy flavours or decorated with almonds and nuts.
This is from New Year’s Eve. The Danish Queen gives a speech from her castle in Copenhagen. She does it live which is pretty cool. She sometimes says some thought provoking things (meaning she tells people off!), but nothing political. I’m not a fan of the monarchy, but I think she’s pretty cool, actually.
And fireworks of course! Danes go pretty crazy with their fireworks. Don’t be surprised if it lasts for almost an hour. And that’s just regular people’s fireworks. There’s so much fireworks that we just looked at other people’s.
