SELMA – The Danish American Historical Society of California is hosting its annual Danish Christmas Dinner which starts at 1 p.m. with happy hour and dinner at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8, at the Spike and Rail, 2910 Pea Soup Anderson Blvd.

The traditional Danish Christmas dinner includes roast pork, potatoes, red cabbage, green beans, salad, rolls and butter as well as a dessert of ice cream with raspberry sauce. Danish cookies will also be available. Chicken will be offered as an alternative. As is tradition, a blanched almond will be hidden in the dessert before it is served and the person who finds it wins a prize.

The event includes a Christmas Carol sing-along, election of officers for the coming year, a silent auction and fine fellowship among those attending. A personal life experience of coming to America will also be shared by a member of the organization.
