Today is “syttende mai” in Norway. They celebrate their nation and they celebrate a lot.

The Norweigians in Sweden celebrate at a miniSweden place in Stockholm called Skansen. They are everywhere, even in Sweden.

I don’t know much about the celebration, but I do know there’s lots of joy among the Norweigians. I think that’s beautiful.

So here’s to our neighbors, happy May 17🙂
An interpretation of Norway from my corner of the world.


Norway and Sweden were actually one and the same for a while in 1800-1900’s, but I think Norway manage on their own quite good. Maybe even too good in skiing🙂
