The 17th of May is celebrated as Norway’s birthday. On this day in 1814 the Norwegian Constitution was signed and Norway declared itself a country. The phrase ‘Gratulerer med dagen’, directly translated to ‘congratulations with the day’, is the expression used when greeting and wishing people a happy national day. The same phrase is also used when wishing someone a happy birthday.
So, Gratulerer med dagen! Norway has turned 199 years today!
