Hello, Tedd here! 

May 17th is the Norwegians’ National Day. It is a public holiday and an official flag day. In Norway they celebrate their national day more than many other countries in the world. They dress up in their national costumes called ‘’bunad’’ and the children go in a parade with flags and sing songs, especially the Norwegian national anthem. They celebrate this day because Norway got the Constitution on the 17th of May 1814, and the day is also knows as Constitution day. This year they have a 200 years anniversary. I’m really sad that I have to leave one week before this day… but I have seen a national costume! The picture below, is the norwegian parade outside of the castle in the capital, Oslo.
