Princess Benedikte was pictured after having bought Christmas decorations at Bering House
of Flowers in Copenhagen, a shop that, according to the article, is well-frequented by members
of the family since years.

Thanks, Iceflower

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #48, 2011.
Lækkersulten - Craving for the sweet tooth (*)
Written by Casper Nielsen.

Indeed Benedikte went to a Christmas fair in Gustavskirken (church) recently. And they can't blame her if they didn't create a surplus!
She bought (hang on):
Chocolate-cones, (**)
Christmas ham,
warm-smoked salmon,
konfetti (a particular cube shaped kind of sweets),
Christmas-postcards,
two wooden nisser/pixies for the Christmas tree,
two candy canes (bolsjestænger 6264355 these are homemade, as you can tell)
not to mention that she looked hungrily at a cardigan in grandson-size.

She said: "It's always a nostalgic pleasure to come here at the bazar, because Christmas is something we can all gather around. - We are going to celebrate Christmas at Berleburg".

(*) Help! I need a word from you English speakers out there. Lækkersulten = When you feel a desire for sweets, cookies, chips, to go raid the fridge and other things you really shouldn't eat, because you are not really hungry.
- Lækkersulten is a very common word, so a translation would be most handy. Directly translated it means delicious-hungry.

(**) Ordinary cones (kræmmerhus) for decoration: http://www.fotoagent.dk/single_pictu...0273_-_722.JPG
More grand looking cones: http://www.lanterneshoppen.dk/Images...%A6mmerhus.jpg
Homemade cones: http://at-skabe-er-at-leve.dk/wp-con...a6mmerhuse.jpg
A simple variant of cones with chocolate buns: http://www.bisca.dk/Files/Billeder/E...flodebolle.jpg
- I know all about Christmas decorations! Mrs. Muhler has (traditionally) gone completely berserk this past week. Me and our dog didn't dare to remain still for more than a few minuttes at a time for fear of ending up being decorated as well!

Let me add that Gustavskirken is the Swedish Church in Copenhagen :)

I think the best translation of Lækkersulten might be either craving, a sweet tooth or perhaps what we Americans call 'junk food' which is usually sweet or salty and typically bad for you but something that you crave. I would classify junk food as either potato chips, a soda, or perhaps a small chocolate/candy bar.

I am very jealous of the Christmas bazaars they have throughout Europe. We do not have anything like that in my part of the U.S. In fact, where I am located, we are lucky if we even have cold or chilly weather during the holidays. I've only experienced a 'white Christmas' three times in my life and I'm in my 40's. If we could only have holiday bazaars with royalty and holiday snow, I would be happy! :)

All this being said, I want to say thank you to you Muhler for all the wonderful translations you do! I appreciate them so much and always look forward to them. Hopefully Mrs. Muhler is transforming your house into a royal palace for the season!

Thanks for the suggestions, Parrothead
So lækkersulten = a craving for candy/pastries/junk food/leftovers/sweets and so on.

Well, the snow part tends to wear out when you have to dig a path for your car or your have to wade through snowdrifts to get anywhere.
The weather gods really need to improve snow. Snow should not fall on sidewalks and roads.

You are welcome.
She is!
Should I suddenly stop posting, it's probably because I've been hopelessly entangled in the Christmas decorations.
Okay, it is cosy and the candles are burning at full power here at home. - In fact we've just recieved yet another thank you note from the candle factory....

Summary of note in Billed Bladet #17, 2012.

Benedikte is the quiet workhorse of the DRF and in that capacity she attended a meeting at the retirement home Peder Lykke Centret in Copenhagen. Here she met a number of the residents.

But the real purpose wat to attend a meeting in a project called Employer Branding and evaluate that project that has been going on for three years now.
It is aimed it raising the esteem for the lesser skilled nursing staff. There has in recent years been a negative focus on cheating, a high sick statistic and even theft in a line of work that has a very low status as it is. - In my opinion you get what you pay for. Considering how low the pay is and the low status the job has, it is remarkable that most have so high a moral as they have.
