window shopping in copenhagen - part 3

more windows from our wander around copenhagen on the big prayer day. tho' i love living in the country, sometimes you just need a fix of the city.

oh, and by the way, about the big prayer day. it's one of the many spring holidays in denmark. king christian IV got fed up with all of the little prayer days back in the 17th century and rolled them all into one big prayer day - storebededag - the big prayer day. so you could get all your prayers done in one go. the current government, whose Big Plan to Save the Danish Welfare State is for everyone to work 12 minutes more a day, wants to do away with it.
