Norway's Constitution Day, also known as Norwegian Constitution Day or simply "17th of May," is a national holiday celebrated annually on May 17th. It commemorates the signing of Norway's constitution on May 17, 1814, which established Norway as an independent nation.

The constitution was a significant milestone in Norway's history, as it marked the end of the Danish-Norwegian union and the beginning of Norway's path towards self-governance. Although Norway did not gain full independence until 1905, the signing of the constitution in 1814 was a crucial step in that direction.

On Constitution Day, Norwegians across the country come together to celebrate their nation's independence and democratic values. The celebrations typically involve various festivities, parades, concerts, speeches, and cultural events. People of all ages, including children and adults, participate in parades through the streets, often waving flags, playing music, and wearing traditional Norwegian attire called "bunads."

One of the highlights of the day is the children's parade, known as "barnetoget," which takes place in towns and cities throughout Norway. Children march in the parade, often accompanied by marching bands, carrying banners, and singing patriotic songs.

Additionally, many communities organize outdoor activities, games, and traditional folk dances. It is common to see people enjoying picnics in parks, wearing the national colors of red, white, and blue, and cheering for their local schools or organizations.

Norwegian Constitution Day is a time for Norwegians to express their national pride, celebrate their heritage, and reflect on the democratic principles and values that their constitution embodies. It is a festive and joyous occasion that brings communities together and strengthens the sense of unity and belonging among Norwegians.
