On the 5 May 1945 the second world war officially ended for Denmark. The realisation formed the evening before. People lifted the dark curtains, which had isolated them in their livingroom, preventing their houses from being bombed, and lit candles in the windows. The light became a celebration of the peace restored.
Tonight we put candles in our window, to remember and celebrate the end of the war. To celebrate peace. It is one of my favourite traditions.
