Curious survey o' the day

Or 'there is nothing like a Dane':

Post Danmark, obviously with time left over after delivering the post, has polled Danes on who they would like to get Christmas cards from, and in news that will hearten the Danish monarchy no end, the leader is Her Maj Queen Margrethe II, followed by the heir apparent and then his wife. Next up is the PM, Anders Fogh Rasmussen and then a Danish singer / comedian called Niels Hausgaard. Other nominations included politician Pia Kjærsgaard (10th) and Father Christmas (11th).

While regulars are well aware of my republican tendencies, the Danes have a track record of having rather smart crowned heads, with one of them, perhaps the forementioned Queen Margrethe II having translated Camus into Danish.
