Syttende mai er vi så gla' i

In 1814, after many years of unions with Denmark and Sweden, the Norwegian constitution was finished and signed on the 17th of May, and Norway was yet again declared an independent realm. This date is still celebrated with great enthusiasm by Norwegians all over the world.

It is odd, spending the day making jeans in college, but nevertheless there is always time for a parade, sour-cream porridge and lots and lots of ice-cream.

Gratulerar med dagen, Noreg!!
