The Danish family has a fun way of celebrating the holidays — everyone looks around the house for handmade Christmas elves, which were hidden by Queen Margrethe herself.

Each day via social media, there was a new note about the elves' journey.

"On such a glorious December 24th morning, when the goose and duck roast has begun to simmer in many homes, the Christmas mood is really popping up all over the country," a caption via Instagram read. "But the Christmas peace has not reached Santa Claus at Amalienborg. He has been busy looking for the elves' Christmas tree since yesterday, when he found one of Princess Margrethe's drawings from Christmas 1945, which depicted a fine little spruce tree with decorations and candles. Santa is sure that the drawing is a clue that can lead him to the last stop on the Christmas journey through the King's Row."

The message continued, "The little parrot jumps at full speed around the roofs of Amalienborg to find the entrance to the gnomes' hiding place, and he hardly notices that a sleigh has prepared for landing. It is therefore also on a dangling hair that he avoids getting mast flat like a Christmas heart by ducking the hat when the rabbit lands with a proper 'clap!' right in front of him. To his great joy, it is the Faroese Santa's brother and the Greenlandic Santa's sister who have returned home to celebrate Christmas with the whole family just like last year, and together they list in the attic, where they are greeted by a sparkling little Christmas tree. It resembles the tree that the Queen drew when she was five years old. Behind is a large, heavy box, from which the Christmas Angel slowly flies up from and radiates, so that the entire ceiling is lit up."

"'Congratulations, Santa Claus,'" the message read. "'You reached through the King's Row before Christmas!' As a reward for the great effort, the Christmas Angel lets the elves continue the tradition of sleeping 11 months a year. 'That's why we deserve to celebrate Christmas Eve and celebrate the Queen's 50th Anniversary in just three weeks!' say the elves in chorus before trudging around the Christmas tree. But like all other Christmas Eves, this evening is going too fast, and suddenly it's good night time. Before Santa falls asleep, he asks the Christmas angel where he must have been all that time."

"Believe it or not, I almost ended up as a piece of decoration on the Queen's Christmas tree. But luckily this is a Christmas adventure, and in good adventures everything ends well. Maybe I’ll tell the dramatic story another time, but now you need to sleep well. That is, until it is December again. MERRY CHRISTMAS!" the note concluded.

It also seems like Princess Mary is in good shape after she tested positive for COVID-19 in mid-December.

"There is no indication that others in the family are infected. In connection with the test result, the Royal House of Denmark is receiving advice from the Danish Patient Safety Authority concerning detection of infection," the press release stated. "The Crown Princess will remain in isolation until it is once again safe to end the isolation according to the applicable guidelines."
