  3. Those hearts on the tree have Croatian pattern-white and red squares. I don't know what it does to do with Denmark but many countries copy that in some ocasions.
    I like Mary's red coat.

  4. Why wouldn't Mary bring her children to share such a moment? Perhaps, she still believes in Santa Clause, but her kids do not. Superior intellect to their mother no doubt. A very simple explanation why share the stage or pictures with her own children when all the attention could be on her? Where is her "loving husband" hiding? When HRH the Crow Princess of Norway was invited to light a Christmas tree in London she brought her daughter along.

    1. Why does she have to do what other people do? Her kids may not even have been invited

    2. Perhaps her kids are in school and that school is not participating in this event.

    4. Anon 15:20: Unsubstantiated allegations such as yours are a waste of readers’ time. I would bet that you have never met Mary in your life -- so it is impossible for your assertions that CP Mary is probably of inferior intelligence, and an attention- seeker, to be taken seriously.
      The other reason why your comment is inappropriate is the nastiness of its tone. Remember, Oscar Wilde said that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. You had the choice of raising the question of the whereabouts of Mary’s family in a straightforward and respectful way – but, instead, you chose to do it spitefully. That was just plain and simple bad manners.
      CP Mary is not on my list of “favourite royals”, and I am not an “adoring fan”. But good manners cost nothing. There is no excuse for rudeness.

    5. Et vous françoiseA, vous êtes la peste des blogs ; arrêtez donc d'apostropher les internautes qui osent vous déplaire concernant votre Mary ; tout le monde n'aime pas votre princesse et c'est leur droit. Alors, une bonne fois pour toute, laissez les autres s'exprimer ; vous êtes une des catastrophes des blogs tellement vous êtes hargneuse envers les anti-Mary. et JE SIGNE .... je ne me cache pas derrière une anonyme qui critique les anti-mary, lu sur d'autres commentaires, concernant cette même princesse. Je n'ai pas honte de mon opinion, que cela vous convienne ou pas. Pas la peine de me répondre car la haine, c'est vous qui l'alimentez par vos com méchants.
      Peut-être je vais être censurée ou... pas, mais le raz de bol est dépassé. Continuez si vous le voulez, mais je serai toujours derrière vous pour vous répondre, s'il le faut. et je ne vous dis pas "bonne soirée" mais cela vous vous en doutez.

  5. Those hearts have been a tradition "more or less" for over 100 years in Denmark, it goes back H.C.Andersen if I remember correctly.
    I didn't know that they also had these hearts in Croatia

    1. No, there are not such hearts in Croatia, but this white-red pattern is croatian national symbol. You can see that in some sport ocasions and on the croatian flag.

    2. And the Danish flag is ;) ohhh red and white...and so are the Christmas colors. No need to wonder anymore.

    3. c'est facile de faire ces cœurs: perso j'en ai déjà fait en tissu avec d'autres coloris et en papier de dessin en couleur assez épais! c'est sympa a faire et ça rend bien !!!

    4. Anonymus, I know what the Danish flag looks like, but have you ever seen Croatian? There is no similarity between them. But this unique pattern of squares reapresents Croatia and nobody should copy it, you should use your own symbols. End of the story.

    5. Come on the uniq pattern as you says comes naturally when you make this ornament and so it has been since the middel of the 1800 in all of the nordic countrys. Every kid in school makes this decoration. The copying comment is just stupid!

    6. Danes say this is a danish tradition from 1850-1860's. Some say it's probably a german tradition, but it is no longer alive in Germany. In Norway, the oldest curve who have been found is from 1845 so it's a little before HC Andersen made his in 1860. So who are right reminds to be seen. But the hole Croatia comments are a bit of topic here. We are talking of a old christmas tradsion in Scandinavia for over 170 years! Just because the danes make it in christmas colors and the dannebrog colors. Even in Norway and Sweden red and white are used and a lot of others combinations. Have nothing to do with Croatia! This is the true story so this is the end of the story ho ho ho...

    8. Lassie, do you seriously mean that nobody can depict a red and white square pattern, because that is "copying" the Croatian coat of arms? The pattern on the Danish christmas hearts emerges when you braid to pieces of paper, which is a traditional way of making these ornaments in Denmark. And as someone else wrote, the colours of the Danish flag is red and white, which is why these colours are often (but not always) used for these christmas hearts.

  6. Yes we have red hearts as a symbol of the County of Zagreb the capitale. The red and white fields that we see on the Danish tree make part of the shield that is on our national flag
