Maybe a bit late, but I just wanna wish every Norwegian user on this forum a happy 17th of May. Not much celebration on me though, the reason being I'm a bit hungover after last night. The day is most fun for the kiddies and the old people anyway. So, happy Constitution Day and gratulerer med dagen!

The 17th of May in the year 1814, Norway finally got a constitution of their own. But we couldn't declare independence until 1905 because of a union with Sweden. The union was a result of something that happened after the Napoleon wars. However, 17.05 is our most important national holiday.

We don't visit on Independence Days anymore: bad experiences!
