The National Day of Norway – Post 1

This is the first of two posts with photos taken in Oslo on The National Day of Norway 2012: “Norwegian Constitution Day is the National Day of Norway and is an official national holiday observed on May 17 each year. Among Norwegians, the day is referred to simply as søttende mai (meaning May Seventeenth), Nasjonaldagen (The National Day) or Grunnlovsdagen (The Constitution Day).


The Constitution of Norway was signed at Eidsvoll on May 17 in the year 1814. The constitution declared Norway to be an independent nation.” (Wikipedia)
On the 17th of May we all dress up nice and hit the streets.
