We Love the Holidays
Yeah, okay. Everyone loves the holidays. But our founder’s passion for the season is contagious. From his annual 12 Days of Smithmas to lavish dinners and parties, Charles’ excitement for all things holiday really started when he was traveling overseas.
“I love the Danish Christmas,” Charles’s voice lit up as he explained. “You have this thing called the Julefrokost, where you gather with friends and eat and drink. You can get invited to anywhere from one to twenty of them starting December 1 through Christmas. It’s a great time to eat and drink and celebrate friends, the tradition of candles on the tree and the family joining in song… There’s nothing more beautiful than going down the walking street of Copenhagen when it’s all strung with garland and big luminous red hearts, which are a primary symbol of Christmas.”
