Christmas Traditions in Denmark

Christmas DenmarkChristmas in Denmark is fairly similar to Christmas in Germany. Just like the German table wreath, the Danes use the same type of Advent wreath with four red candles which are lit one-by-one during the Sundays of December until Christmas Eve. Other Christmas traditions revolve around the food and beer associated with the country. Every year at the end of November, the famous breweries of Denmark release a special Christmas beer that is more festively presented and quite a big stronger than regular lager. This time-honored tradition is then expanded to include a Christmas luncheon where this special beer is served around a buffet of hot and cold Danish dishes. Every company in the country that has more than one hired employee carries out these elaborate lunches with its employees to celebrate the Christmas season.

Danes are also very fond of the use of actual candles in many of their Christmas celebrations. St. Lucia Day is held on December 13th and each young girl in the family dresses like the saint with a wreath of candles on her head while awakening the house with Christmas carols and fresh rolls and coffee. Many Danish people insist on using real candles rather than modern electric lights to decorate Christmas trees as well. Therefore, candles are set upon holders on sturdy branches of the tree and are not lit until the night of Christmas Eve when everyone gathers around to admire its beauty and sing until the candles are blown out for the evening.
