It is JUST like it was when I grew up in Copenhagen. The smells of Christmas never leave one. The getting together as a family (and friends) is SO much part of Christmas.I had to smile over the Fattigmads bakkelse. Could not have been too bad being poor in those days. The ingredients are amazing!!!

It is mince pies for me. Bite sized pastries with deliciousness filling the insides. Warm with a glass of port left for Father Christmas is the tradition, but in every get together throughout the month of December they would appear. I do make my own and I can't make enough to satisfy my family's cravings, I give them as gifts and take them to events. But I miss being offered them everywhere I go. Sighhhhhhhhhh. Getting the mincemeat is part of the problem, the black Crosse & Blackwell mainly apple and raisin with too much cinnamon and not enough other spices is just not the same.
