Norwegian national day

I usually keep quiet about my location, but I think I am in a phase of maybe becoming more open about my identity on the blog (or at least where I am and what I do). Anyway, today is the national day here and we're just back from the parade.

Oh, look how pretty! They're like postcards...

I want to go to the parade.

It is really quite an event. In Home Country the national day is not really celebrated by the general public, so this is very different for me. People dress up in national costumes (beatifully embroidered skirts for the women and (at least to me) somewhat funny lucking short pants for the men). All schools and organizations in town participate in the parade and everybody else crowds the streets with cameras and flags.
