Too early for Christmas, you say? Bah humbug! Check out a photo gallery of Copenhagen amusement park Tivoli's Christmas opening.
Nothing quite says ‘Danish Christmas’ like a trip to Tivoli. 
The venerable Copenhagen amusement park opened its doors – and flipped on its nearly one million – lights for the holiday season on Saturday. 
New this year is an Alpine Village that replaces the Russian Christmas theme of the past three seasons. 
Visitors can sip gløgg, a traditional Nordic mulled wine, while they explore the collection of nisser (elves), pay a visit to Santa himself and even take in a showing of the Nutcracker with performers wearing costumes designed by none other than Queen Margrethe. 
We defy even the staunchest Scrooges out there to not get infused with a bit of the Christmas spirit after checking out our photo gallery
Christmas in Tivoli opened for the first time in 1994, and has become a major driver for Christmas markets and activities in and around Copenhagen. In 2013, Tivoli attracted 982,000 visitors during its seven-week Christmas opening. The current Tivoli Christmas season runs from November 15 - January 4.
