Welcome to My Danish Christmas Advent
Calendar! Join me every day in opening a new door. I’ve got
a host of goodies to share with you – traditional Danish Christmas recipes,
traditions, songs, games, decorations, crafts and landscapes… So sit back,
relax and enjoy!
It’s Saturday, DDH (Dear Danish Husband) is home and there are only two
sleeps to Christmas – woop, woop!
So on today’s agenda we have…Juletræet! The Christmas Tree!
Now, I’d personally be quite happy with the plastic tree that I bought when I
worked at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg many moons ago. It
has served me (and børnehave ‘creche’) well. It’s green – obviously.
And green in the eco-friendly way. But DDH insists on The Real Thing. Despite
the cost. [Ouch! Said the Canny Scot.] But, hey, it’s Christmas and he needs
to have a say in things too.
So DDH went out before lunch to buy it. Here we have it. Lights put on by
my DD (Dear Dad) and DB (Dear Brother) who are here from Scotland. Decorated by
my DS12 (Dear Son, aged 12), DD10 (Dear Daughter, aged 10) and my DDN2 (Dear
Danish Nephew, aged 2).
Awwwww. Not a dry eye in the house!
Two sleeps to go! Don’t forget to check back here tomorrow when we open the
