There is only an hour left of the 17th of May and I want to spend a few minutes of that time congratulating my fellow countrymen here.

My facebook and instagram feeds are overflowing with the colors of the Norwegian flag, red, white and blue. Beautiful pictures of smiling Norwegians in parades, drinking champagne for breakfast, eating candy floss and wearing the beautiful national costume, bunad. Norwegians knows how to celebrate their constitution day, and this truly is the merriest day of the year! We haven’t been to the parades, had any champagne or eaten candy floss today, but we still had a great celebration. Baes little brother turned four years old today so we got to celebrate both the constitution day and his birthday. We spent the day with him and his family, filling our bellies with stew and gateau.

I hope everyone who celebrated had a wonderful day! Congratulations!
