National Day in Norway: May 17
Norway was a free country for some Months after the Napoleon Wars. But after the Piece Confernce in Kiel, the same Year, Norway was part of the Swedish Kingdom, after beeing a part of the Danish Kingdom for about 400 years. Norway regain it’s sovereignity in 1905. This was headline story.
The most remarkable with the Norwegian National Day Celebration is the fact it’s focused on Freedom, Peace, Democracy and the Kids – the Nations Future. Photos from two places in Oslo this May 17.

Coffee, Cakes, Soft Drinks and Ice Cream and Baloons. Kids Day;-)
Guess who where there? Ingelin and Leander and Ingelin. Ingelin and Ingelin are great Friends from Business Administartion and Marketing Education. They were together in Düsseldorf last Weekend, and now my daughter Ingelin and her Son Leander went up to Oslo to celebrate Norways National Day. See their beautiful national costumes?
Grandma Sölvi was there as well
Then Papa had to go from Oslo South West to Oslo East. Crowed there as well
Kids favourite except for Ice Cream: Hot Dogs!
Who is here? Anna – hooray! She went in the 2 1/2 hours School Parade – yes it took 2 1/2 hours for Oslo’s 119 School who participated this year from start to end. The Highlight of the Parade is greeting the Royal Family in from of the Royal Castle.
But we missed the Cake. Then grandson Sebastion is the right person to buy the Lots.
Did he win for the 3rd Year in a row? Yes. A French Chocolade Cake. Her with his Father Niklas.
Anna was of course a bit tired after 4 1/2 hours with her Class and even more celebration with Sebasian and Niklas etc, so we went home and had a Bottle of Champagne. Rosa was happy as well;-)
Papa saying cheers to all his blogger friends around the globe.
Have a nice week.
