Single and turning 25 in Denmark is HORRIBLE. They will literally POUR cinnamon on you!
It’s a tradition for all unmarried 25 year-olds to get tied to a chair, or a lamp post(pictured below, while your so called friends toss cinnamon all over you. Seems fantastic!
This apparently dates back to the 16th century when Danish spice salesmen would devote themselves so much to the trade that they would forget to find themselves a wife. This would apparently mean you end up on your own making it a tradition to cover single 25 year olds in the spice that caused them to be single.
HAPPY BORN DAY!
so in Denmark, when you turn 25 and aren't married you get cinnamon. best tradition ever! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BROTHER❤️ pic.twitter.com/GwezomTr0M
