Celebrating National Day

Celebrating National Day

Ah, but to be Norwegian, particularly on Norway's National Day, which took place the Sunday before these photos were taken.

The event, marking the day in 1814 when Norway adopted its new Constitution, is celebrated across the nation.

In Norway's capital city, the children's parade is the main attraction, with all 111 city schools represented.

I was one of the few fortunate enough to obtain special seats in front of the Royal Palace to watch as parade participants marched up Oslo's main street, Karl Johans gate, to the Royal Palace, where they were received by the Royal Family standing on the front balcony, waving to the crowd.

The weather forecast had not been good, but the day turned out to be a beautiful one, with lots of sunshine and brilliant blue skies.

The Constitution of Norway was signed at Eidsvoll on May 17 in the year 1814. The constitution declared Norway to be an independent nation.

The celebration of this day began spontaneously among students and others from early on. However, Norway was at that time under Swedish rule (following the Convention of Moss in August 1814) and for some years the King of Sweden was reluctant to allow the celebrations.

For a couple of years in the 1820s, king Carl Johan actually forbade it, as he thought the celebrations a kind of protest and disregard—even revolt—against Swedish sovereignty. The king's attitude changed slightly after the Battle of the Square in 1829, an incident which resulted in such a commotion that the King had to allow it. It was, however, not until 1833, that anyone ventured to hold a public address on behalf of the day. That year, official celebration was initiated by the monument of the late politician Christian Krogh, known to have stopped the King from gaining too much personal power. The address was held by Henrik Wergeland, thoroughly witnessed and accounted for by a Swedish spy, sent by the King himself.

After 1864, the day became more established, and the first children's promenade was launched in Christiania, in a parade consisting only of boys. This initiative was taken by Bjornstjerne Bjornson, although Wergeland made the first known children's promenade at Eidsvoll around 1820. It was only in 1899 that girls were allowed to join in the parade for the first time.

By historical coincidence, the Second World War ended in Norway just nine days before that year's Constitution Day, on May 8, 1945, when the occupying German forces surrendered. Even if The Liberation Day is an official flag day in Norway, the day is not an official holiday and is not broadly celebrated. Instead a new and broader meaning has been added to the celebration of Norwegian Constitution Day on May 17.

The day focused originally on the Norwegian constitution, but after 1905, the focus has been directed also towards the royal family.

A noteworthy aspect of the Norwegian Constitution Day is its very non-military nature. All over Norway, children's parades with an abundance of flags form the central elements of the celebration. Each elementary school district arranges its own parade with marching bands between schools.

The parade takes the children through the community, often making stops at homes of senior citizens, war memorials, etc. The longest parade is in Oslo, where some 100,000 people travel to the city center to participate in the main festivities. This is broadcast on TV every year, with comments on costumes, banners etc, together with local reports from celebrations around the country.

The massive Oslo parade includes some 100 schools, marching bands, and passes the royal palace where the royal family greet the people from the main balcony.

Typically a school’s children parade will consist of some senior school children carrying the school’s official banner, followed by a handful of other older children carrying full size Norwegian flags, and the school’s marching band. After the band the rest of the school children follow with hand sized flags, often with the junior forms first, and often behind self made banners for each form or even individual class.

Nearby kindergartens may also have been invited to join in. As the parade passes, bystanders often join in behind the official parade, and follow the parade back to the school. Depending on the community, the parade may make stops at particular sites along the route, such as a nursing home or war memorial. In Oslo the parade stops at the Royal Palace while Skaugum, the home of the crown prince, has been a traditional waypoint for parades in Asker.

During the parade a marching band will play and the children will sing lyrics about the celebration of the National Day. The parade concludes with the stationary singing of the national anthem "Ja, vi elsker dette landet" (typically verses 1, 7 and 8), and the royal anthem "Kongesangen".

In addition to flags, people typically wear red, white and blue ribbons. Although a long-standing tradition, it has lately become more po

I took three movies out from the library, "Ghost Town," "Kind Hearts and Coronets," and "Alice in Wonderland" (from 1985). I watched "Kind Hearts and Coronets" this evening and enjoyed it. I grew up watching the 1985 TV version of "Alice in Wonderland," even more than the Disney version. I have no major interest in "Ghost Town," but since it's free to see, then why not.

My film collection as of today (April 1, 2009). I brought home all my films from university so this is my complete collection, excluding television series and comedy dvds (which would account for probably half as much again). And with some to still come through the post - ebay seem to have free p&p on everything now which equals amazing bargains! I got 10 DVDs for ?14 the other day.. a few are brand new!

Hot Choco-lat(e) 245/365

Hot Choco-lat(e) 245/365

Ahhhh, Christmas shopping. It took me a long while to decide what to wear today. I'm not a fashion person, it was more a point of "wow, it's cold out, but I only wear skirts & tights . . . how am I going to keep warm?" I compromised with skirt & tights, my usual heeled boots, & then 4 layers up top. A vest, a shirt, a waistcoat, & my amazing fringe hoodie which keeps me toasty warm. Plus a scarf & gloves. My legs were still freezing.

We parked out of the centre & walked in through the Darwin centre, & off to the restaurant. We were early, so we just strolled through town. Waterstones was packed. I saw her an omnibus of the Southern Vampire Chronicles for ?14.99 & was so annoyed - I'd just got my brother to order it for me (for Christmas) last night for ?24.00! We have a ?15 limit with each other this year, so I already owed him ?9. Annoying. Amazon is usually cheaper.

So after wandering about a little, we headed to the restaurant. There were 2 people queuing to go in, so we just got behind them. Then more people joined the queue. A harried waitress then rushed over & told us they weren't open til 12pm. It was 12pm. & the door was open. So she was rude to us all, & the people behind us complained about her. She seated us, & my Mom was annoyed at her manner, but I just figured she must be stressed. I've never taken it out on a customer, but I've had crap days at work. No need to make it worse. I've never really liked 'ASK', but everyone else does. I think the pizza there is quite bad, so I just ordered garlic bread. It was on the starter list, but it was basically a full sized pizza. Like, wow. That's a starter?

After lunch we split off. My parents went there way, & I headed to Clintons. We got our parents cards, but decided not to bother with each other. I threatened to make in a home made card (which would mean he'd have to reciprocate) but he threatened to beat me up, so I left it. We headed to Monsoon first - we usually get my Mom something sparkly from there, but it was all the same stuff as last year, & then Accessorize didn't have anything either. I'd already agreed to make my Mom a mix CD, so we just had to find something for my brother to get her. We checked HMV for my Dad, & the queue was freaking massive. We ended up getting him an 'In the Loop' DVD. I love that film, but my Dad rarely watches movies twice. Maybe he will. I also bought myself 'An Inconvenient Truth'. I like the pictures. I remember watching it in Environmental Sciences, as my teacher pointed out all the inconsistencies, & the general bad science, & even the way the graph he was using hadn't been presented properly, & wasn't showing proper correlations. But yeah, I like the pretty pictures.

In the queue a man in front of us picked up a book, & then put it down again. It was Where the Wild Things Are!! I'd wanted to buy that for my Dad for his birthday (fond childhood memories) but I hadn't been able to find it in any of the local bookstores. So I picked it up, & the man looked regretful, then watched me for a while. It got awkward, cos I wasn't putting it down again, no way. So he broke the silence by saying his daughter loved that book. I said I loved that book too. I figured that he wasn't buying it again anyway - if his daughter loved it, then she already had it. Main point was, he wasn't getting it off me anytime soon.

I dragged my brother in H&M. I haven't seen anything I've liked in there for ages. We bought my Mom a Garden Planner in Boots, but all the pages were upside down & couldn't be reversed. There wasn't a second one there to exchange it with, so we figured we could exchange it in Oswestry. We also bought a plain journal from WHSmith's & figured we could fill it with pictures & scrap book it etc. We met our parents at this hairdresser's which happened to have a tea shop in it as well, & we headed back to the car.

We went to Oswestry next, & my Mom went for her acupuncture, & my Dad, brother & I went to Costa (but not before exchanging that upside down Garden Journal). My brother & I had hot chocolate, & my Dad had a mocha which was in this awesome mug with a handle on either side (the simple things in life please me). It was nice, just chatting, & I snuggled into my Dad, & then took photos. When my Mom called we went outside to meet her, & I took photos of the Christmas lights.

At home I wrapped some of the presents & wrote the cards, before putting them under the tree. Then my brother & I watched a movie. We have always had movie nights, but as we've gotten older they've stopped being so frequent. When I was involved with the American I spent a lot of time talking to him, & then when I wasn't my brother just didn't want to hang out as much (though we still both made an effort). Then I had exams, & whenever he asked to hang out & watch movies I

Dude, I adore my friends!! XD

I slept in again today, I think it was like 11 when I woke up and 1 when I finally went downstairs lol. It was sooo cold this morning :( I hate the cold. I was all warm in my blanket and then moved over to get up and froze so I just stayed put lol. When the urge to pee was too much to take I got up lol I went downstairs and we chilled, all day long. We watched tv and movies and what not but basically we just chilled. It was kinda awesome. I walked to the store 3 times today... Gosh thats friggin insane.. I hate how whenever Im "home" I end up with a rep at the store! Its not cool but kinda funny. Like in Washington everyone knew us at Safeway. I just looove the store. I get made fun of a lot but I really do love the store, its like a magical land of stuff! Its awesome. I read some more today. Im over half way with it now. Its gettin really good. Iv gotten filled in on most of the stuff thats going on the last few sections but I still have no clue where its gonna go. The only Dean Koontz Iv ever read before was Demon Seed so I dont know his writing style. Now if it was Stephen King Id be able to make a good guess on how it was gonna end but Im in the dark here lol.

Its almost midnight and Im pretty tired, and way full. We made rice crispie treats and they were darn delicious. Im gonna read some more before bed. Im at the point where the book has taken over. Ill be sittin and watching tv but Ill be wanting to read, wanting to know what happens but Im gonna be sad when it ends lol I hate reading :/

I didnt get to see my guy today lol thats what Rose calls Ryan, my guy. But we sure did talk about him lol. Once again I was on my laptop and Monster comes and sits by me and says "Ryan?" so we go to his page and look through his pictures and watch his videos and Monster gets soo excited and soo smiley and the pitch of his voice gets soo high lol its adoryble, thats also what Rose says lol adoryble :) Monster has an unhealthy obsession with my guy, its cute and all but I dont wanna have to compete with a 2 year old little boy lol. I barely got to talk to him too, Im sorta bummed out. I need my Ryan fix lol. Tomorrah I spose :/

My rib has been hurting all night. It blows. For all of you that dont already know I broke it like 3 years ago. It used to be soo bad and it hurt constantly and nothing could ever take away the pain, nothing! Now I can go days at a time without feeling a thing but when it starts up it fucking hurts (sorry mom lol) and still nothing can take away the pain, I just wait it out, it blows. I hate it but I think Im gonna have to live with it forever. Lame :/
Wow thats my 3rd ":/" in a row here lol Im on a roll.

About that sticky note. Iv ridden..rode..which one is it? Anyway Iv ridden/rode a camel before, at the zoo in Tacoma. Actually I have twice, cause Im cute, gotta love being a girl. It was badass! The way they walk is so cool and they are so cute, I loved it. But they had on handle bars and got led around by the camel cowboy. I want to ride a real one, in the desert! Just cause itd be cool.
I love this picture lol Rachaels crazy and I love her for it! This was our 3rd trip to the store. Shes holding her jugs lol which are her POP and Aprils POP. And caramels and melon o's. Peach rings are better but tis all good :) She was standing on the side of the store, I dont actually know what kind of store it is.. Maybe an Exon? I dont know.. huh.. Im gonna have to figure that out next time lol.
