Christmas in Denmark

Danish Christmas TreeChristmas  (Jul) is a very big deal in Denmark. Expect to see lots of candles. Although Danes think of themselves and the country as on the cutting edge of the 21st Century, a visitor who had the opportunity to spend time with a Danish family at Christmas would find a festival that is in many ways reminiscent of a simpler time.Danish Christmas is traditional and the biggest day of the year.

The entire month of December is dominated by Christmas.

Hans Christian Andersen

HC AndersenHans Christian Andersen is probably the best known of all Danes. He wrote plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, but he is best remembered for his fairy tales.

Andersen was born to humble beginnings in Odense, Denmark and first rose to public notice in the late 1820's. Two of his stories; "The Little Mermaid" and "The Snow Queen (Frozen)" have been the basis of Walt Disney Animated Movies.
