On the evening of December 7th, Ambassador Lose hosted the annual Christmas Cocktail Party at the residence. With almost 400 guests attending, the residence quickly filled with true Danish “hygge”, as conversation and laughter started to spread.
Alongside with members of ADBC, congressional staffers, government officials and political stakeholders were among the attendees. Not only did the guests get to see the remarkable art displayed at the residence, a live jazz concert by Danish jazz singer Tine Bruhn contributed to setting the scene for a joyous evening. The guests enjoyed traditional Danish Christmas cuisine, which among other delicacies consist of the traditional pork roast sandwiches, cheese nips, Danish butter cookies, “floedeboller” and glögg. This was all possible because of funding from ADBC and generous donations made by Arla, Danish Crown, Kelsen, and Floedebolle. All contributions allowed the guests to get a sense of what a true Danish Christmas tastes like. By the look of it, the evening sparked interesting conversation among the guests, and is a true testimony to the important relations Denmark has in the US. The event was the perfect conclusion to 2017, and we look forward to the collaborations to come in 2018!
