In their annual display of unabashed patriotism, millions of Norwegians all over the world dress up on the 17th of May (Syttende mai) and take part in traditional parades, ceremonies and parties to celebrate the creation of Norway’s own constitution on the 17th of May in 1814. We followed some of the action on Tuesday in Oslo.
