From the Editor It was wonderful to see how adults and children worked hard at the ‘julestue’ last Sunday to make a new skirt for our old Christmas tree as well as heaps of decorations. Saw some great ideas and beautiful stars and ballerinas. There were tastings of finskbrød and vaniljekranse for all and then Kupaleja came along and it turned into an even more enjoyable afternoon. Christmas is just around the corner and Santa is already getting ready to set the reindeer GPS to Austin Street with a sleigh full of presents. December is a busy time of the year for everyone, but make sure you catch the Christmas procession at South Bank, the camels are awesome! There are also Christmas markets in many neighbourhoods – give some weird and wacky Christmas presents this year!

What’s on at the DanishClub?

And yummy hot dogs. The bar is stocked with genuine Tuborg and Carlsberg beer brewed in Denmark as well as your favourite Australian beers. If you prefer a glass of wine with your food, we have a good variety of whites and reds on offer. It’s also an opportunity to buy delicious Danish pastries, ryebread and other specialty breads and organic biscuits direct from Britt’s Danish Delights. Tea is back with smallgoods and quality meats from Flemming, the Danish butcher at Woolloongabba, as well as her own goodies including remoulade and ‘hønsesalat’.
