Christmas lunch for the "The Wonderful Women" 2017



The annual Christmas lunch for "The Wonderful Women" took place this afternoon for an even bigger group this year - fantastic :-)

As usual we had the usual tapas selection from Osteriet with company in form of two home-made breads: rye bread and cooking pot bread with fig and hazelnuts. This year we also could enjoy these marinaded herrings.

As tradition demands we started the Christmas lunch with a cocktail in form of French Martini.



The dessert part of the Christmas lunch we could both enjoy this New Year cheesecake as well as a selection of sweets:

The tradition also describes, that we have to play the gift play (pakkeleg in Danish) using a specific card game, so not dices as normal. All participants bring between 2-8 gifts, and in the card game you either end up with most of the gifts or not gifts at all. As the gifts can be everything between DVDs, paperbacks, ugly Christmas decorations, tea and chocolate, it is not good to get all the gifts ! One of the play card has a text, saying you should give a gift to each person under the age of 25 years, so we therefore decided to the card text should be re-written of the person get the most gifts this year. We are looking forward to experience the new text in 2018 :-)









As usual we spend some great hours in good company getting up to date with each others lifes :-)
