Christmas is almost here, and however you celebrate, it's hard to avoid the magic in the air. But the past year has also seen its fair share of firsts. So whether you spent last Christmas in lockdown or experienced a real Danish Julefrokost for the very first time, at The International, we're coming together to wish for better times in the new year.
We asked some of our incredible Social Media Ambassadors from all over Denmark to send in their Christmas wishes to see what the future holds and how we can work together to make this Christmas better than the last!

"I wish that everyone could travel home to spend Christmas with their families and loved ones!" - Manon Coolen, Odense @danishdiscoveries
"This Christmas, I hope to be present in each moment and enjoy the little things - like the sweet taste of æbleskiver, the bright sight of twinkle lights in Roskilde, or a cosy talk with my family in the US." - Katie Noyed, Roskilde @katharinehn
"I've never decked the halls, and I have no idea what Jingle Bell rock is. But I hope your Christmas rocks!" - Pavlos Tsiakoumis, Copenhagen @tsiakpavlos
"I wish for french cheeses in all Danish supermarkets."- Leslie Noygues, Horsens @Lesienys
"Wishing for a world without lockdowns!" - Ane-Sophie Custura, Copenhagen @Sophie.Custura
"My Christmas wish is to meet family members and friends in person. It has been more than 2 years since I visited my home country, and the uncertain situation makes it difficult to plan things. Hoping to enjoy festivities with my family rather than wishing them on video calls!" - Neelam Gahlaut, Billund @framesbyniki
"I wish to spend this Christmas with my family after last year's break so I can bake cookies with my mom and sister, taste homemade wine, and hear my grandma ringing the bell, calling us all to the Christmas tree. Also, I wish for higher alcohol content in gløgg!" - Michaela Medved'ova, Odense @who_run_the_world_pandas
