Danish Christmas Party? Check(list)!

It’s Friday, yay!  Which means not only the start of the weekend and party time but – all through the month of November and December – Julefrokosten! The Danish office party!  (You’ll remember that the first ‘snow’ fell last Friday – Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! – so the streets are already awash with Julebryg, yule brew/Christmas beer.)

Are you off to an office party tonight?  Or, I should really say, this afternoon?  ‘Cos they normally start in the early afternoon and carry on until the wee, small hours.  And are you, like every good Girl Guide or Boy Scout, “well prepared”?  Here’s a helpful checklist I saw in the window of our local chemist/drugstore (the MATAS chain)…

  • nailfile
  • lipstick/lip gloss
  • tights
  • hairspray
  • glitter
  • hairspray
  • hair accessories
  • condoms (!)
  • deodorant
  • perfume, handbag size
  • powder
  • glitter for nails and body
  • SP12 chewing gum
  • MATAS plaster for blisters


Um, with that little lot, you’re going to be needing a shopper rather than a tiny clutch bag, ladies! 😛

Have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend!

Diane 🙂
