This year St. John’s Eve or Sankt Hans – as we call it in Denmark – will be celebrated Friday 23 of June.
For that occasion we will go to Frederiksberg Gardens in Copenhagen to watch the bonfire and enjoy a danish summer night in each other’s company.
This is an opportunity to experience how we in Denmark mark Sankt Hans. We will share experiences of different ways to celebrate this night and look into why we in Denmark have traditions such as burning a “witch” on the bonfire and singing “Midsommervisen”.
We invite you to take part in a potluck, where we all bring a dish to a shared picnic.
All members of Dansk ICYE are welcome but we only cover the transportation cost for members of the local branch of Copenhagen.
We hope for good weather – and to see you there!
