It’s my second time celebrating National day in Norway but last year it was in Lillehammer.But, this year I decided to go and celebrate in Oslo (the capital city of Norway)
Gratulerer med dagen Norge! Hurra! Hurra! Hurra 🇳🇴(As Norwegians greeted each other) or if we really translate it to English it says “Happy Birthday Norway” 😁
Celebrating the signing of the Norwegian Constitution in Eisdvoll, May 17,1814. ( like 202 years ago today)
It’s a huge celebration among Norwegians. A typical children’s parade and a party to everyone.
Marching bands, traditional costumes (Bunad) a hundred of different ones,with different colors and styles indicating which region they are from.
In Oslo, the parade is greeted by the royal family waving to the crowd(unfortunately I’m late so I’m not able to see them waving 😂😅)
And party is everywhere! It was a great cultural and historical experienced. A great one! Indeed.
Hurrrrrayyyy Norway 🇳🇴
