My Danish Christmas Advent Calendar - 19 December (Weird and wonderful)

Welcome back to My Danish Christmas Advent Calendar!  Join me every day in opening a new door.  Once again, I’ve got a host of goodies to share with you – traditional Danish Christmas recipes, traditions, songs, games, decorations, crafts and landscapes…  So sit back, relax and enjoy!

19 DECEMBER

I was in town last week with the kids, looking at the Christmas lights and displays.  Now, I now they are going for the 'wow' factor but this year ILLUM (a Danish department store) has more of a "shock and awe" factor.  Did they take inspiration from the second season of the tv series The Bridge / Broen / Bron?  Need a reminder about that scandi crime series ?  Here's a little snippet...note the animal masks!



And here, dear readers, are the ILLUM window displays.  Am I the only one who finds them a bit creepy? ;-)



This one doesn't have a leg to stand on...boom, boom!



Flødeboller arranged as a Christmas tree?  Okay, we did like this one...



Rabbit head plus little glowing baby/child = extra creepy!



Oh, well, at least the animal choir were pretty fun to watch.  They danced along to the song, "I'm too sexy."



But what is the front one holding?!  Oh, yes.  A bra - selvfølgelig!



And this last window?  Words fail me...



It was a relief to go round the corner...



...and get back to some normal Christmas lights.  (If you want to see the lights at Tivoli this year, see Tuesday's post.)



Don’t forget to check back here tomorrow when we open the next door!

I agree. Creepy - and it does remind me of those episodes.
I always liked the outdoor wall of fairy lights they have up...I guess I will stand back and admire. Or is that gone?
