Skt. Hans Aften .... Denmark´s Celebration of the Summer Solstice

Skt. Hans Aften var i går. Du kan læse om det og lærer mere med "Wikipedia" i stedet for mig prøver at forklare det. Vi fejrede Skt. Hands Aften med Trine (min svigerinde), Mogens (min svoger) og Rebecca (min niece) og vi havde en vidunderlig måltid og aften med dem!


Skt. Hans Aften was yesterday. You can read about it and learn more with Wikipedia, instead of me trying to explain it! We celebrated Skt. Hans Aften with Trine (my sister-in-law), Mogens (my brother-in-law) and Rebecca (my niece) and we had a wonderful meal and evening with them!

Rebecca, Albert og jeg fryser foran en Skt. Hans ilden (og ja, vi har frakker og halstørklæder på i juni!) ... Rebecca, Albert and I freezing in front of the Skt. Hands fire (and yes, we have coats and scarves on in June!)


Mogens og Mads er SAND DANSKERNE fordi det lige meget hvor koldt vejret er. Til en Dansker øl er altid drikken af valg! Mogens and Mads are REAL DANES because it does not matter how cold the weather is. To a Dane, beer is always the drink of choice!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I had seen your through Nichole's. So glad she now has a fellow Texan there with her (well besides Michael) =). Glad you made it there and now have your new home with your pets, husband, and all those shoes!!
That looks like a pretty cool celebration! and of corse it is about 95 outside so I agree with the jealous of having to wear a coat!

Burn witches burn! There was a witch attached to that fire before they started it yes?

Glad you had a fun first Skt. Hans Aften!!

I'm glad you had a fun evening @ your first Skt. Hans. It does seem weird seeing you in coats and scarves in June. I'm glad you were able to take Albert with you. How's Emmitt doing? :-)

Did they sing songs there too?

Okay, you know I'm jealous of your layers. I could go for a button-up shirt, stylish jacket, hip jeans, with black Kenneth Cole square-toed shoes. LOL!

It looks and sounds like you had a great evening!

I must not be a real Dane - I don't drink beer. But I'm pretty strange where drinks are concerned: No coffee, tea, wine or beer! My mom thinks that I just haven't grown up yet! :)
