The party has begun! Famous fairy tale author Hans Christian Andersen had a birthday, and if our technology would be already that far, he would have been 200 years old now. Independent of that, the celebrations to show our respect towards this great fairy tale author, have just begun. Many known names from around the world have gone to Denmark to celebrate this event. Sir Roger Moore, The Danish Queen, football professional Peter Schmeichel, just to mention a few.

If you've ever been a child, the name Hans Christian Anderson should be rather familiar to you. He has created tales like The Little Mermaid, The Ugly Duckling and The Emperor's New Clothes. All together he has written 157 fairy tales, which have been translated into more than 150 languages.
