Who knew. - Here's an odd piece of news and trivia. Denmark celebrates the 4th of July. In fact they host the biggest 4th of July celebration outside of America.
One of the guest speakers at the event will be Mortensen, famed for his Aragon portrayal in "Lord of the Rings."
Danes and descendants of emigrants have celebrated the U.S. Independence Day with barbecues, square dancing and country music outside Rebild, a village 155 miles northwest of Copenhagen, since 1912.
That's pretty cool if you ask me.
