I was curious about traditional Danish wedding and if the what was traditional a century ago is still being used today...and if not so much...then are any of the traditions of old correlated with the new now days?

I was a bit curious about wooden shoes too but I see you have already addressed that!


Maybe you could share what a traditional Danish wedding would entail as it is carried out today...for the groom and the bride. Thanks!

Edit: Oh yes...and welcome to ATS!

Well I do prefer danish candy, and gummy.

You can read about Christiania here:

The news about the saving plan:
translate.google.com... -kunne-ikke-slaa-jer-ihjel%2F

An article about the latest raid:
translate.google.com... -paa-christiania%2F

I hope I didn't break T&C with this

bad news to hear the late trouble about Christiania °_° but as i understand you right its still (and probably will stay that way) not a real problem to buy something at Christiania/Pusherstreet...???

and my haribos are import - because of the special flavour you have over there, seriously the flavour is something else in Dk =)

From what I see, danish weddings are pretty much like american ones. I think they remained the same at least as long as I have been alive, I was born in 79.

I know that for some people, especially the brides, it is important to have something old, and something new. And I think, something blue.

In later years, it is now possible to write your own vows. I think that is also the case in USA?

And thanks

I am not a big fan of religion in any shape or form. I am a member of the danish church, I thinks it's christian. All are members, until they unsubscribe the church tax. But it's not super easy. Though I think they made it a little easier, now that most things happen online.

My family is danish for as many generations I know of. If your question was about race, and not religion.

Takker
Well, yea, I think it is german also. But I still agree, some of the candy, especially gummy, has a better taste and consistence in Denmark.

God aften.

It's very easy to get out of that religion trap. Just take your baptice paper? (dåbsattest) to the local church office, tell them you want out and they will send you a new dåbsattest where is says you are not a member anymore. You might have to take a trip to the local tax office also to make sure they don't forget that you should not pay church tax anymore. Easy peasy and I wish every one would do so!

Hi, I know of no conspiracies regarding the danish monarchy. I don't follow the monarchy, and I think they are only kept for tourism. Alot of the things you wrote, I never heard of, but it sounds interesting.

In general, I think old people and kids like Mary D, because of the press that the majority of these two groups follow.

Are you saying there were templar knights on Bornholm once?

Thanks, I wish they would make it easier
And reverse it, so that you had to sign up when you are 18, rather than it being forced upon you.

Do you guys in the US pay a semi forced church tax?

Hi - I recently watched the 'Pusher' trilogy and was wondering if Danish society is really as divided due to immigration as the films seem to depict?

P.s Copenhagen looks amazing

The lower in society you go, the more apparent different social problems become. But there are certain areas of certain parts of Denmark, that have a high concentration of mainly muslims. But I would be careful to pin it on immigration. There will always be a high concentration of certain classes certain places, be that rich or poor. And in Denmark, the immigrants have not been welcomed with open arms by a majority of the population, as well as a majority of the politicians. But more and more young followers of immigrants, are taking long educations. So hopefully it will be evened out a little.

Thanks, I also love living here. the weather could be nicer, though in these days, there's nothing to complain about
