Yesterday was a holiday here in Denmark and a day off. So called Ascension Day was celebrated, a religious observance celebrating Jesus' humanity being taken into Heaven, 40 days after Easter. I am not sure how much of it is truly celebrated in this spirit anymore; basicaly this means just another day off from work for most Danes and Swedes. Most likely it is celebrated in other Scandinavian countries and parts of Europe. Furthermore, today is also so called "squeeze in between day", meaning a working day squeezed between a holiday and a weekend. Most people take today off as well, getting a really extended weekend out of it. I however am heading to work and as today is my favourite day, it doesn't bother me much that it is not a free one for me.
Below a little collage of my western skies, that are getting lighter by each day - the difference a week has made is pretty obvious (please click to enlarge).
Happy Friday everyone!
