Party like the Danes
A tip for everyone who wants to have a good time: party with Danes. Seriously, Danish people are crazy-funny-mad. Got to love them for being able to start their own little party no matter where they are.
At yesterday’s wedding (my oldest sis married her beloved Dane Michael) us guests were 50/50 Swedes/Danes (+ some people from Belgium), but it was the Danes that took command from the start. Singing, dancing, having their own little “games” and kinds of fun (such as trashing the groom’s socks? Haha! Apparently that’s a Danish tradition). I don’t think I’ve ever had more fun. It was just the perfect kind of party. Some seriously good speeches, amazing food, a good live band (we all went mad to their version of “I just can’t get enough” by Depeche Mode) and so many people dancing that we could barely fit on the dance floor. What an excellent night, and again, Danish people, WOW! There might not be many of them out there but they sure know how to party.
Oh, and by the way, I almost dressed every single family member in dresses I made for them in Suzhou! A wedding success!

All the men lining up to kiss the bride while the groom hit the bathroom (is this a universal tradition? Or is it just in Sweden we do this?)
The first dance
Trashing the groom's socks (?) -yeah, like I said, Danes are funny!
Yum! I had it for breakfast the next day too
