“LYSFEST” (light celebration)

4th of may 1945, the Danes got the message, that the war was over. During the war, everybody had put up blackout curtains, because the feared that the British bombers could see the light from the houses. But on the very first night of liberty, every house, every single window, was lit-up by candlelight. That is what this celebration is all about.
