J is for Jul


For this week´s Alphabet meme I could have written about Danish Jens Henrik Jensen (but I have not read the two books on my TBR yet), about Swedish Mari Jungstedt (but Maxine beat me to it) or one of my favourites, British P.D. James (who has also been ´taken´).


So to save time I am going to CHEAT. This post is not about crime, but about Christmas (in Danish: jul - like the old word ´yule´). Here you have three Danish Christmas decorations. Enjoy!

Love your decorations! I was wondering what the suspended decoration in the middle picture is called.

Dorte - Those are beautiful decorations : ). Thanks for sharing them. I like their simple lines and attractive shapes.

Elizabeth: thank you. The middle one? It is called a window frame. LOL (It is a frame which was meant for a vitrine cabinet so it is not very difficult to copy it).

Kerrie: oh yes, I just pre-scheduled it so I have just come home from town (bought the most expensive Italian jeans I have ever owned).

Margot: thank you! We like simple, natural decorations, and as we have red walls, green is a good colour.

Gautami: I thought it was a great opportunity to show you some Danish jule-traditions :D

Thanks for those seasonal photos. I love to learn how other countries celebrate these things. Your decorations are simply stunning in their simplicity, so natural instead of all the artificial stuff we tend to use here in the UK. I especially loved the middle candle decoration.

Ann: tak skal du have.

Petty Witter: well, some Danes also buy artificial stuff, but we live in the country and have woods nearby so I think it would be rather silly to buy something that nature does so much better :D
