Yay, it’s Friday – the best day of the week – the start of the weekend! And
if you’re staying in tonight in Denmark, you’ll – selvfølgelig – be
It all starts at 7pm with Disney Sjov (‘Disney Fun’) – a mix of new
and old Disney cartoons. It’s become a real tradition – they’ve been showing it
forever on DR1 (the main public channel). The Danes grow up with it and, yes
– guilty as charged – we have even based our mealtimes around it…
It’s a hyggelig (cosy) moment when the adults break out the red wine
and the kids get their weekly ration of slik (sweets). How about some
skum? [See my You are what you eat?]
Then hot on the heels of Disney Sjov comes Danish X-Factor. No
introduction needed there, surely? Truth be told, it’s been a pretty boring
season so far. No-one we have really loved, or loved to hate. But there are
the occasional moments of brilliance, like last week’s performance by Amanda.
She did a fantastic version of “Hollow Talk”, a song by the Danish band Choir
of Young Believers. Sounds familiar? It was the theme tune from the tv
series The Bridge / Broen / Bron.
Have a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend!
