Happy “syttende mai”Saturday, May 17, 2008 at 18:32 | Posted in History | 1 Comment
“Syttende mai” is Norwegian for the date of today 17th May. The Norwegian constitution was adopted on 17th May 1814 in Eidsvoll and the date is celebrated as the Norwegian national day.
I wrote an article about the historical background and my personal experience on celebrating the event for six years ago (in Swedish here). Please note that the comment links in my old site no longer work so if you want to post a comment, please do so here at the blog.
