My father was danish, so I gow up with danish xmas tradition and I still keep it for my daughter and I think it would be great you add your information about danish tradition, I keep my grandmother's and I know nowadays some things change like the ris a la mande is last thing for dinner? I really wonder what Mary think about it and if she add any australian tradition for xmas for her kids, this would be interested to know, somebody knows anything about this?

A bit too late maybe.
Well obviously we dance around the christmas tree, and sing carols and such. (Btw the funniest time EVER tonight. ) Then we open the presents right after that, while on christmas day, we often spend relaxing or going to a christmas get together. We eat Ris alá mande, a danish invention, and Æbleskiver, which doesn't taste like pancakes at all in my opion, and most families by them, they don't use a pan. We eat pork loin with crackling (according to the dictionary ) and some people also/or duck, and goose. red cabbage and brown potatoes are also a part of the christmas dinner. And the Ris alá mande of course for dessert, where we put an almond in the ball, and the one who gets it receive a present, often a pig of marcipan, or chocolate, etc. When there is children, many families cheat.

To me it's so strange every time I see a christmas tree in a movie or so, because I can't help but wonder: "you can't dance around it, it's placed in the corner, what then?"

And many danish trees are not decorated as "perfect" as many american ones, they are often decorated with all kinds of ornaments, colours and shapes.

Merry christmas to everyone, I hope you'll have a wonderful christmas.

Check out the two sofa's in the Knogelig link. Yikes! I confess I find the Queen's taste really quite horrid sometimes, but I also admire her for it. I mean, they are private quaters and can be fashioned in any which way HM chooses.

Certainly outside the 'mould', is Daisy...

I know, I went to a Norwegian Christmas party once where we danced around the tree, and I ended up wishing we had that tradition in America. Thanks for all the information, SarahMaria!

Uau, Princess Marie was the woman of the Ball.
Just amazing. Prince Joaquim must be very proud of her.

Crown Princess Mary as usually very glamorous!
