17th of May is Norway's National Day. We celebrate with happy parades, flags and shouts of joy. We sing our National Anthem and our National Psalm and other wonderful songs of Norway.
Weapons, tanks, armour, military are all banned from this celebration. The streets are filled with peaceful and joyful parades of happy children. Many people wear their national costumes. These costumes vary from area to area and tell us where people come from. 17th of May is very colourful with great variety of clothes, the spring in full bloom.
