Viking Christimas in Herning?
Some of you might think ... how are they really celebrating Christimas in Denmark? Are we running around naked with horns on our heads ... or do we celebrate Christimas more or less like you guys America? To your reliefe, we are doing many of the same things and having the same traditions, but there is one thing that you don't have ... A calander candle! Yes, a candle where we are burning one day at the time until the 24th. Then every one can be all excited by counting the days to the day of Christimas ... pretty cool, huh? :o)
There is one thing that Kelli have, that I have NEVER seen before ... A plastic Christimas tree in a box !?!?! Where did that come from? I know ... I know! You can't buy a real tree, because of the weather there, but here in Denmark we all have real Christimas trees with real candles on .. Can you imagine that?
On Saturday dad and I are acturelly going to the forest to cut down a tree for my parents house ... A good and long tradition that we have done every year since I was a little boy. I will make sure to bring the camera, so you all can see.
