Happy birthday, Norway!

Today, on the 17th of May, it’s Norway’s constitution day! In 1814 we finally got our independence, not only from Sweden, but also Denmark. The two had taken turns in ruling over our country. The day is celebrated with parades, fair grounds and when we were kids, as many ice creams as you could possibly eat in a day. People who are graduating college/uni also dress up to celebrate since they’re close to their final exams and hand ins of their thesis. I personally wont celebrate this year since I’m recovering from a surgery I had on the 15th, but I will wave my little flag from my home.

Happy birthday to my fellow Norwegians, hope you have a good one.
