Christian Den Fjerdes Laug


Humrlegat Aalborghus 2017 1The setting was perfect and could scarcely be better when chief-bencher Niels Voss Hansen, thirst-master Palle Bjørnstrup and troubadour Kjeld Trudslev, all from Christian The Fourth´s Guild appeared in Aalborghus Gymnasium in order to donate a Good Spirit-prize to Mads Aaby Gaunby.

The gymnasium – which is an upper secondary school – was already in a festive mood as this day also was the gymnasium´s anniversary. In this connection it was a strange coincidence that Christian The Fourth´s Guild the following day could celebrate its 75th years anniversary.>>>

2017 12 04 HumoerlegatThe prizes – which are given to young people who are being educated in Aalborg’s “gymnasier” and Tech College – are given out as an extraordinary Christmas and New Year gesture to the young people, and it consists of a diploma and a modest amount of money, so that the receivers should be able to create some Christmas-festivities around them.

It is for the 28th time that the Guild donates the “Good Spirit-prizes to about twenty young students or apprentices. The prizes can’t be applied for, but the Guild gets help to the nomination from the “gymnasier” and education-places,  which are choosing the receivers according to the Guild’s rules, which states: “that the receiver should be a student or an apprentice, who with her/his friendly disposition, good humor and positive attitude has contributed to create a good atmosphere and good comradeship and thereby inspired teachers and fellow-students to function in a pleasant and positive way.”>>>


UNMILPOC means United Nations Military Police Course, and the members are in this country in order to have – at Aalborg Barracks in Hvorup - an international training as a MP.

On this day 21 persons was initiated, and this 21 persons represented no less than 13 nations, really an international group!>>>



It was a happy and merry initiation which took place in the Guild on Friday the 8th of September when 15 Norwegians from Tvedestrand, also known as the “Singing Norwegian Society” were initiated.

And singing there certainly was. Besides our ritual songs at an initiation the Norwegian society had themselves brought a song, which lay ready on the table when the benchers arrived, so when the ceremony was over and done with, the Norwegian singers took over, and it was festive as well as “koseligt” as the Norwegians say.>>>
