Ring the alarm, I been through this too long!

Today is a lot of great things in Denmark. Not only is the sun shining, not only is it International Workers’ Day, but this May 1st also happens to be siren day! At 12:00 noon today, Denmark will test the sirens all around the country. Now, don’t be alarmed (no pun intended). This happens every year by the Danish Emergency Management Agency on the first Wednesday in May and is just another wonderful part of Danish culture. The sirens are used for various things, for example, in connection with a nuclear incident, chemical release, flood, or German attack. So today, when you hear the sirens, be thankful that ze Germans aren’t coming (just yet), grab a beer to celebrate International Workers’ Day at a park here in Aarhus, and break it down to our girl, Beyoncé!
