A Danish Christmas Tradition
The traditions of Christmas are rather special. Each family has their unique version of Christmas and what it means. Still, one thing is certain: Traditions are an essential part of Christmas.
To many Danes, eating ‘æbleskiver’ is a national Christmas tradition. With whom and how they are eaten may vary, but the round skillet-baked æbleskive holds a special place in the hearts of the Danish people.
The æbleskive dates back to the 18th century and translates to ‘an apple slice’, referring to the old tradition of putting a slice of apple in the dough. Today, the æbleskive is most often served with a berry jam and powdered sugar, preferably with a glass of mulled wine on the side.
The creation of an ‘adventskrans’, or Advent wreath, is a Danish tradition around Christmas. In Denmark, we create an adventskrans as a symbol of the countdown to Christmas Eve. A new candle is lit every advent Sunday until Christmas arrives. Today, The shape and size of the adventskrans is less important; it comes in many different variations and can be made exactly how you like it.
Create your very own personal adventskrans with candlesticks, tea light holders or wreaths you already own – tie beautiful bows in your favourite colour for an enchanting look.
