Here is a story about some ladies that enjoy meeting once a month to share a nice lunch, laughter and jokes. They enjoy knitting and crocheting around a dining room table.
Our "syklub" started 14 years ago with 10 'girls', just enough to have everybody seated around a dining room table. We still meet every last Monday of the month at 12:30. We take turns to have the meetings, and a nice lunch is served at a very prettily-set dining table. It is always exciting to see what the hostess has made for us. There is a good feeling and there is lots of laughter and jokes told around the table.
After "tak for mad", we again get hold off our knitting needles or crochet hooks and work until coffee time. We end our "symode" with singing a song written in the honor of our group.
In the month of December, we have "Julestue", a day where we bring something for a potluck lunch, do a gift exchange, watch a movie, drink some Danish gløgg (wine & rum with added cinnamon, orange zest, cloves, crushed cardamom, raisins, and peeled almonds that you eat with a spoon while you sip your gløgg). Then have some Danish æbleskiver and klejner (Danish fried twists). We call this Danish tradition "Julehygge". It is the same as "hygge", but just with lots of Christmas, friends and celebration!
