Winter Time in Denmark

It’s winter time in Copenhagen!

The beginning of December brought icy weather, more wind, below freezing temperatures, and this thing called “sleet” – as a Southern Californian, I’ve really only ever visited the snow in places like Mammoth for snowboarding and Maryland to see my dad. I’ve never had to actually deal with it on a daily basis and still be a functioning member of society. Not really a huge fan of having to wear multiple layers of pants. No room for activities.

Also, the Danes are apparently wimps when it comes to snow.

Snow and hygge!

December 8th

On Saturday the 8th, we had our Christmas dinner complete with DELICIOUS food, beautiful people, and a highly inappropriate Secret Santa exchange. The food was all made by a  group of extremely talented chefs and I don’t think I will ever have another meal as good as that one. I don’t really remember what all was included in this plate, but it was all ridiculously good. Just wow. WOW. Thank you Jack, Kitty, Stephen, Ria, Tal, and Omar!

It was also the first night of Hannukah so Tal lit a makeshift menorah.

Then we opened our Secret Santa gifts. Let’s just say my friends are a bunch of disgraceful, despicable and highly inappropriate people and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I guess I should probably include some sort of warning that the following pictures are inappropriate…sorry family.
