17. May 193 yeas with a constitution
Friday, May 18, 2007

Yesterday (May 17th) was Norway's constitution day/national day... cant think of the English word. It was parades drunken high school seniors, national dresses and carnival (the thing with carousels and tickets and prizes) I'm not really all in to this celebration but me and my friend decided to visit the carnival and had a lovely time... It helps to bring out the inner child sometimes.. The constitution is something to celebrate I suppose, but its all the marching bands and flags and the fuss I dont really care for. Norwegians is kind of crazy bout this day

Not sure if we got a word in English for a day like that, Constance. It sounds more like the day the Magna Carta was signed in England back in 1215 than a day like July 1st (Canadian Independence Day) or July 4th (American Independence Day). It's a Really Big Day, but doesn't quite hold the same significance as an independence day would;)

Still...glad to hear you had tons of fun:D

My uni friend who's half-Norwegian was talking about this a little while back, and she mentioned it was quite a big deal. She said something about how the official costumes could cost up to £2000 - yeeesh :-S Crazy, indeed!

Glad you had a good time though!
