Yesterday, it was revealed that the immensely popular J-Day (J-Dag) party is taking a break this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Today, it has surfaced that a number of big Danish companies are shelving their annual Christmas parties.
Among the firms to axe their Christmas shenanigans are Novo Nordisk, Danfoss, DSB, DaneDanmark and Sydbank.
“We are part of the critical infrastructure and so we don’t think it’s too clever to gather so many people in one place given the coronavirus developments,” Tine Moe Svendsen, the head of HR with DSB, told Ekstra Bladet.
Black Friday next?
Meanwhile, Pandora and Danske Bank are also mulling cancelling their Christmas parties, while Jysk plans to break its Christmas fun down into several smaller events.
Another popular event that could see reduced action this year is the ‘Black Friday’ shopping mayhem day.
The supermarket chain Rema 1000 has already announced it will drop the event this year.
