May. 17th! Happy Birthday Norway! :D

19 May

Two days ago was Norway’s 199th constitution day, where we celebrate our independence as a country. It was May 17th in 1814 that we finally got our own constitution and we were no longer ruled by Sweden or Denmark. I was working that day of course, however I got off fairly early (quarter past five) so I had time to eat ice cream 😀 It is sort of an unwritten rule that the children can eat as much ice-cream as they want between sunrise and sunset on this day. So as I was celebrating in an amusement-park, there were lots of other Norwegians there, that were visiting that day, some of them were very drunk -__-” May 17th is not for getting hammered! It is for family and friends and ice-cream and fun! You can have a beer or a glass of champagne. but leave it at that please 😀 Anywhoooo… Here is a picture from the celebration room that work set up for us :
