This is absolutely heartbreaking!!
After a sweet, 74-year-old Danish woman passed away recently, her lesbian partner of 20 years and deceased’s daughter Kirsten Østergaard took her to be buried at the local Christian church.
Sounds normal, right??
Well the church administration was NOT having it. Mama Østergaard was flatly denied a burial because she was gay!!!
Whaaat??? E tu, Europe??
Kristen was OUTRAGED, and rightly so. She discussed their interaction with the church official:

Nothing like some tranquil tunes to cure a case of the Mondays!
As far as we know, this is not a scene from Woody Allen’s next film, LOLz!!
This well orchestrated flash mob (sorry, we couldn’t resist!!) was actually concocted and carried out by the Copenhagen Philharmonic to promote the local station Radio Klassisk.
Flash mobs may have jumped the shark awhile back but, in this instance, the soothing sound of Peer Gynt tamed our inner
We wish all commutes to work could be this lovely!!

Denmark knows how to do it BIG!
The Danish version of X Factor pulled out all the stops for its finale and who else would they choose to close the show but none other than Oh Land?!?!

Check out Oh Land and Sveinur (above) and see how they brought the season (and the house!) down to a fantastic close!

Back in November, things got really hairy for the royal couple!
Prince William and Kate Middleton were traveling back home from a humanitarian mission in Denmark when their pilot had to a steep emergency climb to air when another plan was late to clear the runway.
Their plane was only 200 feet away from landing!!!
Neither William nor Kate were hurt nor the rest of the passengers on the British Airways plane.
A source says that near crash was “a serious incident and would have been terrifying for those on board."
We'd have to agreed ten fold! Luckily their pilots were quick on their feet!

And they do some good while they are there.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are in Denmark this week as part of the efforts to support UNICEF. William and Kate traveled specifically to Copenhagen this afternoon, to visit the UNICEF Supply Division Centre to see the efforts to distribute food and medical supplies to East Africa.
They have such strong desires to do good in the world, especially for the next generation. We're quite proud of all the work they do.
