Today is "Bededag"--Great Prayer Day in Denmark. Prayer Day comes the 4th Friday after Easter and is a national holiday where schools, shops and offices are closed. In preparation for Bededag, Danes eat "warm wheat buns"....a DELICIOUS bread that you can only buy the night before Bededag. I LOVED them and will look forward to next year when I can eat them again! "In Denmark we have so many special delicious things that you can only buy at certain times of the year....Christmas beer, Easter beer, Kleiner and now....Bededag´s Warm Wheat Rolls!)
I dag har vi mange konfirmationdage i Danmark. Konfirmationer er en kampestor ting i livet for danske teenagers og jeg er spændt på at se min første konfirmation. Vores niece Rebecca vil blive konfirmeret i dag så jeg vil have mange ting at fortælle efter jeg oplever en dansk konfirmation dag på Bededag!
