After several years of making this series I think this and the BonBon Land comics explain Danish culture the best, though I’m not sure if it actually clarify anything.

Happy cute Yule

Happy cute Yule

I’ve been blamed for only focusing on scary and weird Christmas traditions. Well, for once Christmas falls on a Friday so I thought I’d celebrate by posting the most obnoxiously cute Yuletide picture.

We are in a very hateing relationship

We are in a very hateing relationship

Based on several stories I’ve heard from Swedes. Danes love to make fun of Swedes and Swedes love to make fun of Danes, but Icelandic people also love to make fun of Danes. Several Swedes have described hanging out with Icelandic people as “First it was fun to make fun of Danes together but eventually it started to annoy me and I thought NO! STOP! We hate Danes more than you! It’s not funny anymore!”

According to a fair few Swedes I've talked to this is a thing about Danes that really pisses them off, and it's even funnier because few Danes know about it.

Picking and choosing

Picking and choosing

It's a very common reaction in the Nordic countries to just dismiss Iceland's place on lists because they are so few people. I was reminded of this when I overheard two people talk about this list and one of them said "We have more people in our capital than they have people in their whole country. Of course it's easy to keep a place like that safe". Sweden had much the same reaction when Iceland was higher up on the list than them regarding gender equality. It's just a way for the rest of the Nordic countries to bump ourselves further up positive lists.

They found a compromise. Iceland covered up, but with rubber clothes under the leather straps.
