When you heard of calendars, you just think of normal calendars, right? Who would think the calendars means for countdown Christmas calendars?!
My Danish language school didn’t teach me that tradition, :p , So I completely misunderstood that concept of (Christmas) calendars.
An acquaintance from Japan was planning on visiting Denmark for some kind of study trip, he asked me what’d be good to bring.
Oh, cool, he’s asking the right person. I know the answer!
I told him that the best souvenirs for Danish people were the calendars.
….Sorry I was very wrong….
If you are not familiar with Danish Xmas calendar, I took some pictures for you!
You open 1 ‘window’ everyday from Dec 1 until you reach to December 24. 🙂
Is this only Danish tradition? Or other scandinavian countries have it too?
If you are a foreigner traveling to Denmark this month, buy it!
I think it’ll be a wonderful Danish souvenir – It would be an cultural fun experience for everybody, but especially for kids.
You can buy them from any grocery stores, the price can be $8~$10.
