This afternoon I checked one of my final things off my checklist: visit Tivoli Gardens at Christmastime. Although it was a short visit in the midst of finals, it was as beautiful as ever. We strolled through the gardens, admired the Christmas lights, played with Santa’s reindeer, watched a light show, enjoyed some hot chocolate and danish æbleskiver (yum!), and tried not to freeze our fingers off in the bitter cold. The Danes really do love Christmas.
