Friday night we went to Tivoli to see the lights that inspired Walt Disney to create his Main Street USA. After we saw the Nisse Hus (the nisse are not elves!), and the girls rode a few rides, we were chilled to the bone. So, we popped into one of the many pubs to drink hot chocolate and eat æbleskiver. We sat directly in front of the heater and were shortly very toasty and ready to brave the cold once again. Here’s one photo from the night. You can see more on Flikr (click here), including photos of Cate and her friend Johanna from Estonia participating in the Scandanavian Santa Lucia festival, where young girls dress in white, carry candles, and process around (a school, a mall, the streets, etc.) while singing the story of Lucia.
