The 24th brought the real Christmas celebration. We met around 4:30 in the afternoon and had tea and cookies and played some board games. Dinner was served around 7:00pm. The Danish Christmas dinner was made up of duck, caramelised potatoes, white potatoes, red cabbage and gravy. There was plenty of wine and champagne to go around. I really enjoyed the dinner conversation, the guest were from different generations and different cultures, it was beautiful. The ages ranged from 12 to close to 80 years old, English, German, and, of course, Danish were spoken throughout the evening.

ey told me that we would “dance” around the Christmas tree. Only after I got excited about the dancing part of the evening, they later explained that “dancing” actually meant swaying and walking in circles. I was totally disappointed and told my boyfriend’s sons “I’m gonna moonwalk around that bitch!” This became the joke of the evening and when the time actually came, we seriously held hands and walked around the tree. On the third song we ALL moonwalked around the tree, including the grandparents. It was brilliant!!!
