Taste of Denmark is Dec. 9 in Viborg
The Danish Festival Days committee of Viborg wishes to announce that the fifth annual "Taste of Denmark" Christmas Celebration will be held on Saturday, Dec. 9 at the Viborg Community Center. Christmas in Denmark is a joyous and special occasion filled with old Viking traditions and Christian customs.

Winter is a dark time in Scandinavia, so the celebration of the lengthening days after the winter solstice has become a yearly tradition. The Danes have found a way to mark the season with a celebration of light.

The Danish Days Committee invites you to come and be part of the festivities as we try and recreate some of the traditional Danish traditions.

The evening will include a traditional Danish Christmas meal and entertainment. The meal will consist of roast pork, potatoes with parsley butter, creamed peas and carrots, Rodkaal (red cabbage), Ris a L'amande (rice pudding), Aeblekage (Danish apple desert), Danish cookies and drink.

The doors will open at 5:30 p.m. with pre-dinner entertainment. The sit down meal will be served at 6 p.m.

Entertainment for the evening will include music by local talent and conclude with the Danish tradition of singing and dancing around the Christmas tree.

Tickets for the fifth annual Christmas "Taste of Denmark" Christmas Celebration are available at Stitching Sisters in Viborg or online at www.danishdays.com.
