I LOVE this Danish tradition! We always make this on "Little Christmas Eve" (the 23rd) The one who finds the whole almond in their rice pudding gets a wrapped gift!

Ris a la Mande (rice pudding with almonds). The cherry topping is a must. I just adore it! To follow tradition, add one whole almond to the batch, and the person who ends up with the almond in their serving gets a special little gift. Find the recipe here.

Danish Christmas traditions ‘Pick a Nisse’

LOOK AROUND YOU! THERE ARE MANY THINGS TO SEE! THERE ARE FAIRY TALES, IF YOU BELIEVE! THESE THINGS I KNOW. THEY'RE TRUE & I WILL TELL YOU SO..

"Gækkebrev," is a Danish Easter Tradition of sending out teaser letters. The letter is cut out and decorated with a snow drop and includes a little poem or rhyme. The letter is sent anonymously, thus, it contains dots that correspond to the number of letters in the sender’s name. If you guess who sent it, you get an Easter chocolate egg. But if the recipient does not guess who sent it, so he or she gives an Easter egg to the sender. “Mit navn står med prikker, pas på de ikke stikker”.
