Tivoli’s illuminating displays for Copenhagen Light Festival

Once the twinkly lights of Christmas in Copenhagen are packed away and the blast that is New Year’s Eve is over, winter can be dreary and dark in Denmark.

Danes Blow the Old Year Away With a Bang

YOU’VE NEVER SEEN FIREWORKS LIKE THIS BEFORE

Godt Nytår! That’s Danish for Happy New Year! And dang it, Danes celebrate the turning of the calendar like nowhere I’ve ever seen. And I’ve seen New Year’s Eve in a few places around the planet. But here, in Denmark, it’s difficult to describe. It’s different and delightful and downright LOUD. These normally rule-following, structured and peaceful peeps throw a no-holds-barred kind of colorful chaotic cacophony of a welcome to the brand new baby new year. If you’ve been here on December 31st, you know. If you’re Danish, you know. This year we celebrated our fourth New Year’s Eve in Denmark. And by now, I think we know! Any and all future end of year celebrations will pale in comparison to Copenhagen’s. Come see why and how to usher in the new year like a Dane. This is a little louder than your average hygge. But if fireworks are your thing, I reckon you’ll be happy.Copenhagen has the Best New Year's Eve in the World | Oregon Girl Around the World

It’s mid-November now. The clock has turned back and the dark descends earlier each evening. By Christmas, we’ll be down to a mere 7 hours of daylight per day here in Denmark. No need to fret. Don’t be concerned. Bust out your candles. Turn on those twinkly lights. Let’s get our Jul on. It’s one of the things I adore most about living here in Denmark. And many Copenhagen Christmas activities kick off for real this weekend when Santa switches on the lights swung over the streets in the center city.

How to celebrate this beautiful and hyggelige* Jul season when here in the capital? There are so many things to do, but these are few of my favorites. Here are 10 ways to help you make the most of your Christmas in Copenhagen:
