Here in Norway, we are getting ready for an extra long weekend, with lots of celebration. From Saturday to Monday, Norway is observing the Pentecost, Monday being a national holiday, and on Tuesday, May 17th celebration of the Norwegian constitution, also known as the National Day of Norway, is observed.
This will be my 14th year to celebrate it, and I have to say, it is one of my favorite days in Norway. The joy, cheer, and national pride are so high, that even the weather in the past hasn't been able to dim it.
The day often starts with a big breakfast, friends and family gather together, early in the day, to enjoy the meal, getting a good start on the day.
