The Gækkebreve (pronounced gae-ke-bra-ve)
Getting creative and sending a gækkebrev to your friends and family is a unique Danish tradition dating all the way back to the 18th century. A few weeks prior to Easter, young Danes will cut out elaborate shapes on paper and write small poems inside. They sign these letters anonymously by signing with the number of dots corresponding to the number of letters in their name (so, four, if you name is Erik, for example). If the recipient guesses who the sender is, the sender owes him an Easter egg. However, if the recipient can’t figure it out, the recipient owes the sender an Easter egg. If you are looking to go all out, check out the collection of H. C. Andersen’s paper cuts as a point of inspiration.
