Norway Day

I've worked with my Norwegian friend Marte for 3 years now, before her arrival in the office I was completely unaware of Norway day (17th May, apparently it's Norway).  Marte's first Norway Day in the office passes relatively unnoticed despite much enthusing from our lovely Norwegian.  Second Norway Day in the office gets more attention than the previous year, but sadly for Marte her desk is decorated with posters for British Sandwich week.  Third Norway Day in the office was not going to go past without celebrating!  The crazy woman gets into the office at 7.30am to decorate everyones desk with a Happy Norway Day flag:

She puts on a fine spread of food, my contribution being some Norwegian flag cupcakes:

To the pub to celebrate properly, taking with us some of the decorations sent from Norway by Marte's mum.  

So there you have it, a taste of Norway Day in the UK.  Apparently in Oslo there are massive parades and everyone wears their national dress and it is a massive celebration, definitely something I would like to see first hand, maybe next year?  


  1. Sounds like a great plan for next year :) xx

  2. That's funny that she went to work early to decorate everyone's desk. She sounds like a fun person to work with. So in hind site, Happy Norway Day! :)

  3. LOL Good for her I Love it! LOL
