About syttende mai:
The Norwegian Constitution Day is the National Day of Norway, and is an official national holiday observed on May 17 each year. Among Norwegians, the day is referred to simply as syttende mai (meaning May Seventeenth).This is a very important day for  Norwegians.  All over Norway, the day is celebrated with children’s parades with an abundance of flags form the central elements of the celebration. Each elementary school district arranges its own parade with marching bands between schools. The parade takes the children through the community, often making stops at homes of senior citizens, war memorials, etc. The longest parade is in Oslo, where some 100,000 people travel to the city centre to participate in the main festivities. This is broadcast on TV every year, with comments on costumes, banners etc., together with local reports from celebrations around the country. The massive Oslo parade includes some 100 schools, marching bands, and passes the royal palace where the royal family greet the people from the main balcony. More…

Syttende Mai is  widely celebrated in many Norwegian immigrant communities throughout the world, and has  since 2001 been celebrated each year by the  Norwegian community in Siem Reap!
