and what better way to celebrate our Savior’s overcoming, than… drum-rolls please… drinking beer!
Yup, as weird as it may sound – though honestly, nothing is too weird anymore – and as little association there may be between beer and Jesus/Yeshua, the fact is, we’re in Denmark, and you know the old say: When in Denmark, drink beer as if there were no tomorrow ;)
Now, since there is a “Julebryg” (Christmas brew), it is only natural to have a special “bryg” for any other special occasions, right? Then of course, there is a “påskebryg”, and of course, there had to be baby chicks* on the cans/bottles.
So, here it is… skål! og god påske (and may G-d bless you all richly but, most importantly, may all of us bless the L-rd’s name)
* It is traditional for Danes to display baby chicks everywhere, around Easter time; yes, there are the occasional bunnies, and yes påskehare (Easter Bunny) does bring chocolate to the kids, but Chickens definitely rule this holiday!… I’m pretty sure you’d like that, Miss Selk :)
