Cold outside

December 22, 2010

I am glad I could buy some presents inside a shopping center:

The night between the 21st and 22nd of December is the longest night of the year, but this year it was also a record cold night in Denmark:
It was -23 degrees C., which is not only the coldest night this year – but also the coldest temperature measured in Denmark in 23 years!

    The shopping center looks really pretty with the Christmas decorations.

      It has been very cold the last week, I was in the shopping center with my son buying the last gifts when I saw these decorations…….

    It’s wise to stay indoors when it’s that cold. Maybe the shopping crowds won’t be so bad? 🙂

      No – I enjoyed those hours with my son – and his joy kept me warm even outside in that cold 🙂

    Well at least this festive image is nice and warm!

      Yes – it’s nice finding warm and colorful things these days………

    Beautifully colored decorations!
    It surely was a cold night – and morning.
    I wrote a little about it this morning:

      These colorful decorations were quite impressive, very different from our decorations at home 🙂

    You have my sympathy – we have only five 🙂

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New year – and greeting to everyone in Århus!

      Merry Christmas and Happy New year to you and all our friends in Norway 🙂

    Pretty darn cold here, too. I don’t even venture out!

    I always LOVE the oversized decorations at the high-end malls. Don’t ya wish you coudl take them home and stick them outside your home?? The neighbors would think we’d gone insane! 🙂

    Stay warm and toasty this holiday! 🙂

      We have rather traditional decorations in restrained tones in our home, and yes – our neighbours would believe we were insane, if we had these colorful decorations here! I hope you will have a Merry Christmas and a peaceful and happy New Year!

    -23 degrees! Wow! That’s definitely what I call cold. I can’t even possibly imagine what it might be like going out in that sort of temperature! All I can say is that going into the mall was probably a very good idea! I suppose if you’re getting temperatures like that in December, it’ll be even colder in January and February?!
    You’ve captured a nice warm scene here though! Good job.
    Merry Christmas :)!

      Thanks, Kai. I hope you enjoy your Christmas in warmer conditions. Merry christmas – and Happy New year!

    Pretty photo with lovely colors.

    That is cold, really. Just this morning (December 24th) we have here -23.5 Celsius.

    Brrrr… we don’t even have the right CLOTHES for such temperatures! What on earth do you wear to keep warm in such temps?

    This Christmas, we were in Namibia, where it was so hot that we wore shorts, thin t-shirts, and sandals, on our way to the shops in the morning to buy fresh Broetchen (rolls) for breakfast. And we had to put the air-con on in the car in order not to melt away into a little puddle on our way back. What an amazing contrast, hey?

      Shorts, sandals and air-con – for Christmas!!!!! THAT will be my no. 1 on the list with my wishes for next Christmas 😉

        In that case, you should plan to visit South Africa or Namibia over Christmas, Truels.

        Namibia used to be a German colony, back in the old days, and there are still many Germans living there, and so German (European) traditions are kept alive… we also celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve, for instance. So in some ways, you will not feel all that far from home. 🙂

    Great idea to put South Africa no. 1 on my next Christmas wish list 😉 – + Namibia! So we’ll see if Father Christmas will fulfill my desires!
