Today is the department’s annual Christmas Lunch. I’ve never heard of a Danish workplace that doesn’t have this event. Google “Danish julefrokost” if you want more on the in’s and out’s of this ritual – posting more here may not be entirely suitable for an academic blog (unless perhaps it is for an anthropological blog).

In its honor, I guide you to this Time news piece with the currently trending Yule Log video of the year embedded.


You can access the video directly here:

Note: The aesthete in me would  love to say this video’s setting is exactly what academia at the University of Southern Denmark enjoys. It’s not. We have a more modern work environment in which to get actual work done. Just not during the julefrokost!
