Prince Christian turns 3!

Prince Christian is three years old today. The Crown Prince Family is once again reported to be spending a quiet birthday and short autumn break at the Trend hunting lodge in north Jutland as they did last year. There is a contrary report via Denmark's Statistics that the birthday is being spent at home in Fredensborg.

From Billed Bladet 'Prins Christian rykker en stue op i børnehaven' - Prince Christian to advance at kindergarten | by Anne Johannesen
The children at Queen Louise Day Nursery are divided into three rooms/classes depending on their age and maturity. Christian began in the room called Spiren ( = the sprout). When the autumn break is over Christian will move into another room called Bøllestuen ( = the hoodlum/hooligan) room, minus any violence. In another year's time he will move into the next room up, Loppen ( = the flea) where he will saty until he starts pre-school when he is six. The head of the kindergarten, Helle Zahco, will not say anything about how Christian is doing, only to confirm how things work at the day nursery.
Berlingske Tidende reports that according to Danmarks Statistik the name Christian has become more popular since 2005. There will be 83 Danish boys turning three today, 162 kids altogether, but only one other boy shares a name with Prince Christian.
