Store Bededag, or "Great Prayer Day," is tomorrow and it's a day-off-work kind of holiday (woo!).
The history is pretty straight forward--way back in the 17th century, Danish folks were like, "Man, there are sure a lot of prayer days around Easter...I wish that we could streamline this a bit or something." So they did, by lumping all the prayer days into one Great Prayer day on the fourth Friday after Easter.
Since, you know, Great Prayer Day meant you were making up all your prayers in one day, everything was closed, including the bakeries.
So, tonight, the day before Store Bededag, you traditionally go out and buy some warm wheat rolls and eat them with butter and jam--because, even though you were supposed to buy the bread early and eat it the next day, who can resist a warm roll fresh from the bakery?!
So happy Store Bededag tomorrow. And enjoy a roll tonight!
