Happy New Year! or Godt NytÅr!

Fireworks over Copenhagen

The sky was crisp and clear in Copenhagen last night and the moon was as full as could be. At 12 o’clock the tradition is to go out into the streets and celebrate the beginning of a new year with fireworks. If you take fireworks as a measurement of a Country’s economy; Denmark is not in crisis. They went on for over an hour and were absolutely all around us. This was the first year that our girls managed to stay awake and see the New Year in with us, so it was a special night.

This picture was taken with my iphone, so its not the best, but you get the general idea. Moon, fireworks…the only thing missing was the sound of teeth chattering, at -8 degrees celcius…it was a little colder than our usual Californian climate!

We hope you enjoyed your New Year celebrations. May it be a very special year for you and your loved ones!
