As a Homo Bergensis (no tasteless jokes on this please) and therefore 'norwegian', I'd like to comment on a few things from the unmentionable dataBASS linked to above:

"Bergen's parade differs somewhat from the parades in most other towns, in that it includes comic troups, various local organization, and the buekorps."

Good god, am I happy not to be there today! The "comic troups" more or less equals most of the people from the east of norway who have moved to Bergen (lwestcoast). They clap their hands, smile a lot and generally say things like "Congratulations on this great day". We natives find that funny. They're like the people in your company who say that "WE MUST STAND TOGETHER TO MAKE SOME PRODUCT AND SELL AS MUCH AS WE CAN OF IT FOR THE SAKE OF THE COMPANY" a lot. And buekorps is the worst thing on the planet, basically consisting of 100 of obnoxious kids with drums. They are the very reason why those nice asians up there are burning the flag.

"Most other countries have military parades, and have an emphasis on strength of arms. In Norway, the emphasis is on the strength and joy of the children..."

Great! Not only is our national defences so minute that there's no point in showing them in the first place, this is also the day when Norway indulges in mass pedophilia!

As an expat in no other country than the one who occupied mine for 500 years, I think I'll just spend the day getting drunk and have a bbq. Fuckings to national day!
Domenei: I'll do the same here, so long as you do the same for me on July 4th (:
truck: I promise :)
fuckings to all non-norwegians (except those who are members of jumalauta)
