Celebration, Annual, Freedom
The Danes have always expressed their joys by having
festivals. Fastelavns (Fest before Lent) is celebrated on
Shrove Tuesday . The Fifth of June, a traditional celebration,
remembers the day Denmark got its first constitution and
became a democracy. America's patriotism and freedom are
celebrated on the Fourth of July. The bounties of agriculture
are celebrated with the annual Harvest Festival. Christmas is
celebrated not only in the majesty and solemnity of a candlelight
church service but by dancing around a huge tree when
the children also recieve bags of candy, apples and nuts,
