April 25
The Faroese Flag Day on Friday is a national holiday celebrated on the Faroe Islands, which are part of the Kingdom of Denmark.

April 29
The Queen’s little sister, Princess Benedikte, turns 70 on Tuesday, which will be celebrated with flags, including on the buses. She is married to Prince Richard of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and resides in Germany.

May 1
International Workers' Day is celebrated next Thursday by Danish labour unions, socialists and young students looking for an excuse to drink beer all day in Fælledparken. Some get off early from work or school. The day is marked by speeches and revolutionary chants all around Denmark but police occasionally have to crash the party and arrest some revellers. Last year, Helle Thorning-Schmidt was booed off stage in Aarhus.
