The Omnibus Advent Calendar:

The Advent calendar is a treasured Danish Christmas tradition. In many families, kids get to open a small gift each day all December until Christmas Eve, when Christmas is celebrated.

Our small holiday gift to you is a chance to meet one of AU’s many international students and employees every day until Christmas.

All 24 will share where they’re spending Christmas this year, their favorite (and least favorite) Christmas traditions from their home countries,  and what’s most annoying – or surprising – about Christmas in Denmark.

How are you going to celebrate Christmas this year?

Me and my husband will attend an authentic Christmas dinner with some Danish friends

What is the best/worst Christmas tradition from your home country?

I love the ’presepe’ (Nativity scene), and the ways people sometimes introduce new characters and techniques in this traditional art form. I cannot stand Christmas shopping, especially Christmas markets: too busy and always selling the same stuff.

What do you think is the most annoying thing about Danish Christmas?

I love Danish Christmas decorations, but lights are mostly white and I miss seeing a lot of colors around.

- Buon natale!
