Yes, today is the Independence Day of Norway... WOHOOO!
The day every Norwegian takes to the streets to wave flags and celebrate King and country with a mass-hysteria of nationalism.
Kudos to them, I say!
Iceland does the same thing (except for the King-part) on June 17.th and from what I recall it was a very nice day off that I personally mostly spent waking up late and drinking coffee with friends and family.
Still, a nice day.
Sweden's on June 6 for some unknown reason (I've heard several reasons for that date, but none make sense) and it's only been a day off for the last couple of years. Hence I've mostly spent it either at work or school... no fun there.
But to round off these ramblings...
Happy 17 Maj all you Norwegians!
