Happy birthday Norway!

Yes today is our birthday or Independence Day
Lots of good food and ice cream and kids with annoying flutes. Wearing traditional clothing “Bunad” or Suits while we wave the good old red white and blue.


Doggy is of course celebrating also.

Re: Happy birthday Norway!

It looks like the natives are having a great time. I especially loved the picture of the dog with the flag. However, I think it is a Swiss Mountain dog or a Bernese Mountain dog which are of Swiss origin, am I right? Anyway happy birthday to your nation and congratulations on you beautiful country.
