The Danes always celebrate with a cheer. They raise their glasses and instead of saying "Cheers" they say "Skol", usually serving alcohol that's been frozen inside a block of ice. It is very similar to what we think of as Schnapps but some people might think it's similar to lighter fluid.
My husband moved to America from Denmark when he was a kid and became an American Citizen during his senior year in high school. Since we got married, we've been involved in different Danish Cultural Societies such as the Northwest Danish Foundation and
DAVS: Danish American Vintage Society
Saturday was one of those days when we got together to celebrate, with other Danish American couples. It was a TASTY TUESDAY with a Danish Food Fest.
DAVS is a group of people involved in feasting in the Danish tradition. The group consists of mostly mixed married couples - from dual cultures: one American/one Dane.
One of the traditional foods usually served in Denmark is smorgasbord or open-faced sandwiches.
