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.
