May 17th

At this festive day the entire population of Norway celebrate the national day of Norway. The reason why we celebrate this day is because we got our own constitution at the 17th in year 1814.

norgeThe constitution of Norway was established in Eidsvoll, at the same exact day Christian Frederik was announced to be the king of Norway. The celebration of this day did not start immediately after the signing, it took a few years but from year 1905 and on the royal family has been seen celebrating this mark day.

The national day is more marked in Norway judging by whats normal in other countries. It is an official holiday as well as it is a flag day where people walks and enjoys the children’s parade and sing songs related to the day.

 

Happy birthday to all Norwegians!
