New Years Eve on Bornholm

New Years Eve on Bornholm

Are you looking to celebrate New Years Eve on Bornholm?

You really don’t need to do much more than step outside your own front door and look up at the sky.

Most Danes tend to watch the Queen’s New Year speech on television at 6pm and then it’s party time.

After watching the speech, people meet up with friends and family and then let off fireworks in the street.

Everywhere you go you will see fireworks from 6pm until well after midnight.
It’s one big party across the island.

Of course, some gluhwein and schnapps may be consumed, just to enhance the party mood.

Here’s wishing all of our reader a fantastic new year..

New Year’s Eve in Copenhagen

Copenhagen is buzzing on New Year’s Eve, with thousands of revellers out and about the town centre. Many Danes eat at home before going out later and big meals with family or friends are common. Copenhagen’s diverse restaurants are open on this night but busy, so it’s a good idea to book ahead if you want to eat out on New Year’s Eve.

Here’s wishing all of our reader a fantastic new year.

Cold seasons require something warm and protective to wear around the neck. Collar is a knit turtleneck with a zip. It is made with rib stich, and after knitting it is gently felted to make the material soft and compact. The material is 100% lambswool.
Collar is an alternative to the classic tubular wool scarf. Most people find it uncomfortable to pull a tubular scarf on and off, but the zipp solves the problem. The zip is a comforable and functionel feature that sets Collar apart from the normal tubular scarf. The zip is also an example of Timmi Kromann`s special signature in form of a quirky or surprising element. You can see and read more here: www.kokolores.dk

Our Danish Flag

Our Danish Flag

Hetalia- Denmark~ According to legend, the flag came into Danish possession during the Battle of Lyndanisse in 1219. The Danes were on a failing crusade in Estonia, but after praying to God a flag fell from the sky. After this event, Danish King Valdemar II went on to defeat the Estonians. The first recorded uses of the flag appear some one hundred years later.
