Today’s Google Doodle
Norway National Day
Today is Norway’s national day, or Constitution Day. Today, children all over the country will participate in local parades that visit memorials, retirement homes, and civil centers.
The largest parade is in Oslo, Norway’s capital, and over 100 schools and their marching bands will participate. The procession will pass the royal palace where the royal family will greet people from the main balcony. The festivities will be broadcast on Norwegian TV, and on smaller screens, today’s Doodle joins in the national pride. It shows the Eidsvoll — the historic building where the Norwegian Constitution was written.
Happy syttende mai, Norway!
