Norway's celebration seem to put everyone elses to shame.

Posted on

May 17th marks the country's independence from Denmark and the ratification of their own constitution. Now all countries have their own national day, but Norway's celebration seem to put everyone elses to shame. Just have a look at how much fun they are having:

And then they just stroll around all day, slightly buzzed and stomach full of ice cream (there is an unwritten rule that you can eat as much ice cream you want on May 17th).

The biggest newspapers are encouraging people to send them their Instagram pictures under the hashtags #nrk17mai or #ap17mai.

And people are! The national broadcaster NRK has received over 40,000 submissions.

In fact, the Norwegians are SO eager to include everyone in their celebrations that they have taken May 17th overseas!
