Syttende mai
The significance of syttende mai. What lacks in this description is how pretty Norway is in spring, and how suitable a celebration is in May, when the light, warmth and life has returned after a bleak, dark, cold winter.

Webcams from some Norwegian cities:
Oslo, Karl Johan's gate
Bergen, Torgalmenningen
Ålesund, Brosundet should give the most interesting view today.

The parades start at different times, the first one in Volda at 10 am Norwegian time. So I have to go prepare breakfast. I have already ironed two shirts, and have to make up my mind what to wear on a cool, rainy day since I have had my national costume refitted for my daughter.
