Today is Constitution Day in Denmark

Constitution Day (Danish: Grundlovsdag), observed on June 5[1][2], commemorates the anniversary of the signing of the Danish constitution of 1849, which established Denmark as a constitutional monarchy, and honors the constitution of 1953, which was adopted on the same day.[3] Almost all workplaces and shops are closed at noon on this particular day[4] and political rallies and meetings are traditionally held.[3]

This day is also Father's Day in Denmark.[3][5]
