Thank you!

The national day has been celebrated as usual with children parades, school music bands and eating of icecream, even though it has been rainy and only 10?C.

What we celebrate is that Norway on May 17th 1814 got its own constitution which was written by norwegians for norwegians.

My camera fogged up, and that made the resulting picture of my son as he and his schoolclass (hence the banner "4A") gathered to take part in the childrens parade: (Not a good picture, but makes a good impression of the weather)

We had my in-laws and a friend over for dinner and a rather modest celebration.


Here is a few other pictures, showing typical situations on the constitution day, from a norwegian newspaper:

Me espaol is muy mal.

Well, apparently my rather limited Spanish was enough to get me through the wedding in one piece. My Spanish in-laws came, saw their daughter married off and went home again last week, so I shan't complain.

Looks like a good day. Here in Down Under, there is nothing of that sort of child involvement, and our National Day (Australia Day) is just an excuse for everyone to get pissed.

I really think its a good idea for marches like that (bottom picture), it's good for kids to be doin stuff like that http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif And play an instrument! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I think this children parade-thing is uniqe to Norway, and so much more charming than military parades. In Oslo no less than 107 schools paraded in front of the royal castle, with the royal family standing on the balcony waving to all of them.

The students that are 18 years and has just completed 12 years of studying (?) use May 17th as an excuse to get seriously drunk, and those are a lot less charming than the children. They parade too, in a manner that is hard to describe and even harder to explain, but most of their parents are embarrased.

Yeah I could imagine. However, I think it's great that the royal family wave to all of them, it shows that the royalty aren't some secluded people, like the Queen, you don't really see her getting involved in things apart from business. Then again, she is getting along http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Rgr that on the drunkeness, a couple years back on Australia Day blokes about 20 were driving around drunk, but the bad thing was that they were wearing the Australian flag while doings so. And I think this year, some poort innocent bloke get stabbed and put into hospital. Not good at all.
