Happy 17th of May, Norway

To all my Norwegian friends and anyone interested in all things Scandinavian: Happy syttende Mai!
Today is a big day!

It's their Constitution day, so kind of like their Declaration of Independence/Fourth of July. It's the day they mark their uniqueness and independence from the other Scandinavian powers (i.e. Denmark and Sweden...) and it's a big deal. See here or here for more info.

I'm kind of bummed that I barely  miss the celebration by exactly a month. Still, Norway gets the spotlight today.
Go Norway!


  1. The "av" is redundant, Happy syttende mai is quite sufficient!
