They all do this all the time and everywhere, espacially with foreign women. And then they cry for respect for themself when they are not able to respect otheres.

Very well. I celebrated my chirstmas at the West coast of Denmark with my wife, kids, parents, brothers and their children. One huge party where we ended with dancing around the christmas tree.

New years evening is something I never have enjoyed celebrating but I spend the time with my wife and some friends.

In short - it was all great thanks. Do you still celebrate christmas and new year? And if you do, how was it?

It sounds like you had a lovely time, especially Christmas :) Children really do make Christmas special.

In answer to your question, it has been years since I did any realy New Years celebration, now it is similar to what you describe, quiet evening with friends and/or family. Although this New Years I was 30,000 ft up in the air :)

As to whether or not I celebrate Christmas, it depends on which country I'm in. In Egypt, I don't do anything for Christmas, however if I happen to be in Canada, I do the commercial aspect of Christmas, buy/bring presents, enjoy the Christmas sales, but I don't participate in any of the spiritual aspects. Which isn't really much of an issue for me as no-one in my family really partakes in the spiritual aspects of Christmas.

I still love the decorations, the lights, the tree, the dinner, so it was really nice to be in Canada over Christmas.

What you mean is, you walked and skipped around the Christmas tree like every other sodding family in Denmark.

Can't you guys just do something spontaneously? Why do you need a script for everything? You are the most programmed people in the world.

Talk the same, wear the same clothes, eat the same food, celebrate the same days in the same ways.

God, it gets boring after the first few times.

I don't know if what you say about Danes is true or not but I do know that Denmark/Danish people keep getting rated as the happiest most content people in the world. So there must be something to be emulated about their lifestyle :) Perhaps it is the dance around a lovely christmas tree. Whatever it is, I think they should share the secret to happiness with the rest of us :)

Lol. You are quite right. Danes aren't spontaneous but you haven't got a clue about my family or how our christmas-evening is. But go ahead and assume. I find it rather funny.

I guess living in the arsehole of Denmark has made you quite bitter which I truely understand. Or maybe you are some fcuked up islamic fanatic who couldn't provide enough money for getting his third world sex toy to Denmark....

Is that the reason why you live in fcuked up MalmÝ? Lol.

Oh believe me - that's crap. You can't meassure happiness and if you ask people they will usually respond they are happy. What they truely mean is that it could have been worse. Truth is that we have high taxes, lousy cars, a public system that doesn't work well any longer and we have far too many rules. Last but not least people complain way too much and are very reserved. It's difficult if not impossible for foreigners to make friends in Denmark.

I have never believed we were happier than anyone else. In fact the weather alone is reason enough to kill yourself.

However, we talk openly about the problems and we try to manage through the economic crises and that's good. We have almost no corruption and people are ensured some basic means to get through life if they loose their job. People are honest and you can usualy trust your neighbour. These things are extremely important for a society and I have no doubts that Denmark will manage to get through the future as well.

Well if all that is true and Denmark still gets rated the happiest country then just think of the mess the rest of the countries in the world must be in :)

But I think you hit the nail on the head when you said most people realize that things could be worse. I think that far to many of us focus on what we don't have rather than looking at what we do have. Canadians also complain a lot, but compared to the average Egyptian, Canadians have nothing to complain about. And for Egyptians who have a lot to complain about, well at least they don't have the issues found in DRC.

Didn't take you long to resort to bashing Islam, did it? Is it lost on you that for all your proclamations that you hate the racism on here, that you are one of those that promote it?

They have a herd mentality, and all say the same thing. The survey you refer to was also not about happiness, it was about satisfaction. Danes have low expectations. They simply hope tomorrow is the same as today. In other countries, people tend to want tomorrow to be better. Hence, they are not satisfied on those terms. But on a day-to-day basis, they are probably far happier than the Danes, because they dare to dream.

Now please stay in MalmÝ and stop calling yourself danish boy. And by the way I do also despise nazies and white supremacists....

Does that make me a racist? Don't think so....Fcuking jerk.

And this is not racism? You are just one of those bitter islamic fanatics who are extremely angry because you have been deported to MalmÝ because you couldn't provide for that woman you have "imported" because the women up here are used to managed their own life and making their own money.

What a freaking dope.

Yes, but it is the fact that you always bring it up. This had nothing to do with Islam, yet you you still had to waste one of your few sentences bashing Islam, and implying it was a shitty religion. It is this unrelenting attention that you and the rest of the Danes here (and Danes in general) pay to Islam and muslims that is making the country into the most intolerant place in western Europe. It's obsessive and over the top.

Why don't you pick on the Swedes or the Brits or even the French? Those countries are hardly perfect, and at least it would be humouress! Dare to be different.
