I have lived in the UK for 3 years now, but this year was the first time I really got to celebrate 17th of May (Norway's national day) over here. The lack of other Norwegians around here has made 17th of May a dull day.. until now!
I had a great time with the Freesiders (freeside.co.uk) in the park, we had home-made flags, pepsi max, ice cream and Norway Day cake! Only missing a parade and a bit of snow to make it perfect.
Norway Day cake - yum! (Photos: Stuart Hicks)
People gave us a few weird looks, but we were happy to yell "Norway's!" when asked "Who's birthday is it?".
(Looking at this photo, who can blame them for giving us weird looks?)
Thank you Freeside for the best "Norway Day" I've had in years!
