By now the ”Jeanne d’Arc family” is getting pretty big, and getting all of us together can prove to be somewhat of a challenge. Especially since this year we’ve gained even more representatives in Finland, Norway and Sweden: Virpi from Finland, Mette-Mari in Norway and Jessica in Sweden. Additionally, there’s Erik and Ineke in Germany and Holland, respectively, and “good old” Vicky in Denmark. All will be staying at Hotel Randers.
But we’ve actually succeeded in bringing everyone together for the next few days. In connection with our annual Christmas party at PAKHUSET in Randers this Saturday, we’ve invited everyone to arrive a little early.
So tomorrow we’re all going to enjoy a traditional Danish Christmas luncheon out here. Gitte and Susanne are already busy cooking and there’s a wonderful smell of cabbage in white sauce, Danish meatballs and pork roast. The house is buzzing with activity. We’re putting up a lit Christmas tree outside in the courtyard, making pretty decorations and setting up for the lunch buffet tomorrow. I just love the atmosphere here!
We’re really looking forward to seeing everyone both tomorrow and at the Christmas party on Saturday. /Vivian
