Gratulerer med dagen Norge!

Today Norway celebrates its Constitution (May 17, ‘syttende mai’), so GRATULERER MED DAGEN Norge!!! (Congratulations Norway)

For the first time Misha is not here to participate in the traditional ‘barnetoget’ (Childrens’ Parade), so I will wave the flags at his friends who are. 🙂 Weather is absolutely lovely, so it will be good!

Besides the children focused activities, much of the celebrations seems to be about partying and drinking (somewhat comparable with King’s Day in The Netherlands) 😀 The Norwegians do give it a quite nice touch though; everyone dresses up! Most will wear a Bunad, the traditional clothing, and if you don’t have one, then your best suit or dress will do it! (haha, totally opposite to the somewhat clownish King’s Day in NL…)
