Bala Verde said:For the US newbie, is there anything I need to know about US Christmas traditions? For example:
-Do you have special dishes - brussel sprouts etc - like they have in the UK?
-Do you have traditional activities - getting wasted - like in the UK?
-Do you have compelling arguments in favor or against certain Christmas Tree ornaments?
-Do you have favorite Christmas Classics either music/movies?

Edit: But it might be a great recovery drink!
pedaling squares said:Hey, you're in Denmark... I thought eggnog was Danish. Anyway it's a bit heavy for recovery. Unless you wish to recover from anorexia. Check out the egg/booze/cream/sugar combo:
Eggnog - Æggekop
6 eggs -- separated
6 tablespoons sugar
9 ounces whiskey
2 cups milk
3 ounces rum -- or brandy
1 pint whipping cream
Beat egg yolks and sugar together until light and fluffy. Slowly add the whiskey and mix gently. Add the milk, then the rum (or brandy). Mix lightly. Do not beat or stir.
Whip the cream and fold into mixture.
Beat the egg whites very stiff and fold in. Chill for at least 3 hours. Better still, refrigerate overnight.
