First off, congratulations are in order. Denmark is now the official NUMBER TWO 7-Day Weekend reading country in the entire world, with 91 views already in the past 3 days. Thanks for being great, Denmark, keep up the good work, and you shall be rewarded.

To return the favor of Denmark promoting the Weekend, I will now promote Denmark by giving you, our loyal readers, some interesting facts about the country, straight from DenmarkFacts.com.

Climate: Windy winters and cool summers, temperate, humid and overcast; mild.

In 1989 Denmark become the very first European country to legalize same-sex marriages and offer for gay partnership the same rights as for heterosexual couples.

Lars Ulrich ( One of founders of Metallica ) was born in Denmark. This facts is interesting, because in whole history only two famous performers of heavy metal were ever born in Denmark: King Diamond and Ulrich himself.

Stroget in Copenhagen is one of the longest shopping street in whole Europe.

Among other things Danish people have invented the widely known children playthings LEGO. LEGO started to produce toys in 1932. The really interesting fact , for the more than sixty years was sold over 320 billion units of LEGO bricks all around the Globe. If we make very simple calculation we found out that every human being in the world is owner of about 56 LEGO bricks.
