Today all Norwegians are celebrating that on this day in 1814 we got our own Constitution!
We will walk in parades all over the country. All the children will join in on games and will wave their flags and show off their finest clothes. The adults will wave their flags to greet each other and to show that they are proud to be Norwegians. Even foreigners will join us on this really big day. It's a feast from early morning till late night for everybody.
My sons are playing in the school-band and on this special day they will walk in lot of parades to play for the school-children. My eldest son is playing tuba, my younges son is playing flute. They will have a long day, and I'm sure they'll be so glad when it's over. But I also know they are proud to wear their uniforms and to play their instruments. And I will be soooo proud to be their mum. :)
Have a great day everyone.
Hugs, Kristin :)
