Halloween is getting closer.
There are several stories about Denmark being made up of parts of other Nordic countries.
First there's the story about Denmark being made out of sand from Norway that got pushed down during the last ice age.
Then there's the story of the Danish woman who was told she could have as much Swedish land as she could plow around in a night, so she turned her four sons into oxes, and the land she got from the deal became a huge lake in Sweden and Zealand in Denmark.
And finally there's the story of the Danish boy who stole from a giant in Finland, then quickly got in his boat to sail back home, but the giant found out, picked up a handful of dirt and threw it at the boy, and that is how all the Danish islands were created.
