Syttende Mai in Oslo and Ballard

May 17, 2017

While the Museum celebrates Norwegian Constitution Day in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, I'm fortunate enough to be observing the holiday in Oslo. Syttende Mai, or Norwegian Constitution Day, celebrates the May 17, 1814 signing of the Norwegian Constitution, which officially declared Norway a sovereign nation. The excitement and pride here is palpable, and I know is reflected in the revelers back home in Seattle today.
