Julemarked! Danish Seamen's Church 2012 Christmas Fair, Brooklyn

Good cheer all around at the Danish Seamen's Church 2012 Christmas Fair in Brooklyn Heights this past Saturday and Sunday. In the courtyard above, folks enjoyed Danish-style snacks, frikadeller (like meatballs) and sweets, along with beer and a delicious hot mulled alcoholic drink called glogg.

Christmas ornaments, elfs, angels, candles and holiday crafts filled the hall. Danes and Swedes do Christmas with great spirit. We bought ribbon, present tags, decorations and a raffle ticket. (Top prize = tickets to Denmark).

Danish Seamen's Church translation: "Danske Sømandskirke."

A second fair location -- at nearby Plymouth Church -- featured the restaurant with open-faced sandwiched (smørrebrød) and other food.
