Our little group got together in our common room and had a Christmas dinner together. It was a nice gathering and another way to share the holiday.

After that we went to the Koldinghus Museum, which you will know from previous posts that I had seen before. This time we got a little special something here as well. Apparently in the horse carriage house there is an old jail area from the Nazi occupation. We got the key from the gentleman at the entrance and then let ourselves in.

After that we went to his house where his wife cooked us a classic Thai meal. It was a lovely home. There were books everywhere you look and that makes a place home to me. I miss my books being out on bookshelves. And I miss the books that I have had to get rid of. Oh well.
On our last day of Danish classes before the break, I gave a presentation on Danish birthdays and so I made one of there classic morning birthday cakes for the class the night before. It was a rather odd venture as the cake required yeast. I was a little afraid. The last time that I tried to make something with yeast, I ended up freaking out because my hands were glued inside of dough gloves. I guess being pregnant and hormonal didn't help my experience. This time when I got to the stage of the dough glued hands, I held myself in check and kept going. I survived and was able to bring the cake to school the next day.

Once school was closed, I got all caught up on the Danish television Christmas series. I really enjoyed the one about kids who go to Valhal. Guess what it was called. Jul i Valhal. Surprise!
