May 17 is Norway’s Syttende Mai, Constitution Day, to celebrate Norway’s independence from Sweden. It is a national holiday where everyone wears bunads and waves Norwegian flags in parades across the nation. Many Sons of Norway groups in the U.S. also celebrate with special foods and activities. I’m hoping to find a lutefisk dinner this year.
