Not even a snowstorm could dampen the spirits of those who braved the frosty odds to make their way to the annual Copenhagen Post Family Christmas Party. Held at the Copenhagen Marriott Hotel, in co-operation with DTU, Expat in Denmark and CPH International Service, it was a kids paradise with arts and crafts, a Christmas choir and music, and of course glögg.

For these two gorgeous half Danish-half English girls, Billie and Emiliye, it was all smiles throughout the day.

The arts and crafts room proved extremely popular with kids and adults alike.

Enjoying some quality family time were Maja and her parents, Jan and Britt, making Christmas cards.

Lykke My and older sister Anabell toiled away as their proud parents looked on.

Australian parents Geoff and Sam were only too happy to pose for this happy family snap with their daughters, Tessa, eight, and Sophie, seven.

Around the hotel there was a great chance for Danish and international families to relax and enjoy the Christmas carols.

Copenhagen Post intern Jessica Hanley enjoyed the opportunity to kick back with a much needed cup of glögg.

Ines Honfi the owner of Eden Art, who organised the arts and crafts room, once again enjoyed the festivities, as did mum Sofie, seen here helping her half Danish, half American twins, Carl and Ingrid, with their decorations.

Meanwhile little citizens of the world, sister and brother Delta and Storm, were eagerly waiting for Santa, while talented Qingfang entertained those present with the assistance of her teacher John, from Harman Music Methods.

Bilingual Santa proved to be quite a hit with the kids as he made his way into the party.

Surrounded by chords of happy and occasionally bewildered children, Santa was handing out goody bags full of candy, that were bound to make him popular with parents.

While many of the older children were only too eager to give Santa their wish list ..

… a few of the smaller ones weren’t exactly sure what to make of him.
