Happy New Year

Mandatory: The New Years speech from Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark, transmitted live. This year marks the 38th. Ever since that famous speech 25 years ago, when she scolded us for being smart asses, we have been anxiously waiting by the screen for another lecture. But it never got that bad (as in good) again. This is also the one time a year you get to hear the language spoken like it was intended. There is a lot of speculation about whether the Queen is getting ready to hand over the crown to her son, but for now she seems comfortable at the wheel. Even if the ride is mostly for show.

"God save Denmark"
