Jul in Nebbegaardsbekken

Jul, the Danish Christmas, is celebrated throughout December - with a variety of traditions. Last night the staff from EPOKE celebrated Jul at our guests’ house in a picturesque area of Copenhagen.

The cutest of cute red brick houses in Nebbegaardsbekken were built a century ago. I was far too cold to take a picture, but enjoy this one of Flemming Wulff Jansen.

In 2 °C warmly dressed toddlers on push-bikes enjoyed the outdoors in the dusk twilight.

To light up the environment and lift the spirit, burning candles and fairy lights are everywhere.
