Product Details
This 3" tall two-toned satin ornament gives seasons greetings with the Danish "Glædelig Jul" (Merry Christmas) and an image of Julnisse, the Danish elf known for playing tricks. Various Danish Christmas customs are described on the back. Makes a great gift!
The back of the ornament reads...

"The season begins with the preparation of the Advent wreath and Advent calendar. After a candlelight church services on Christmas Eve, families enjoy a festive dinner. After dinner, the children are allowed to see the Christmas tree decorated with straw ornaments, birds, apples, hearts, and kraemmerhus (cone-shaped baskets filled with treats). Members of the family join hands, circle the tree, and sing carols before opening gifts. Gifts often include beautiful plates laden with cookies. Julnisse is a Danish elf known for playing tricks; every Christmas Eve he must be given a bowl of rice pudding to ensure his watch over the family and livestock for the coming year."
