My #UCPH: Instagram Pic of the Day, 29 June

What's the deal with the trucks full of teenagers in sailor hats?

In Denmark, recently-graduated students celebrate the end of high school by donning special hats, decorating a huge truck and then blasting music while they drive around the city, visiting the family home of each student. It’s a uniquely Danish tradition, and can often puzzle foriegners as the trucks take to the streets at the end of June.

Here, instagram user Indsidika has captured a graduation truck.
