Gækkebrev / Danish easter teasing

April 3, 2012

Mit navn det står med prikker, pas på det ikke stikker …….. “My name is written with dots, beware they doesn´t stick you”

Easter is time for sending a fine paper cut out  “Gækkebrev” – a letter without sender. Only sign of a name is a dot for each letter in senders name. If the reciever can guess who the sender is,  a chocolate egg will be given. If not, the reciever has to give an egg to the sender. Let´s see if my letters will be guessed.
