For background information on Syttende mai, including history, what Norway is doing to celebrate this year, links to music, and great ideas for celebrating at home, and more, check out the 17maiMN page on the Norway House website. 

Are you ready for Syttende Mai??!??!!!  

Bunad or "nice" clothes? Brunch or dinner? Hot dogs and ice cream in between? Dessert, dessert, dessert!
We don't have to go out anywhere this year so we have time for koselige moments and good food.  #17MaiMN 
 
If you've been to https://www.norwayhouse.org/stayhome/17mai , you're pretty prepared. Also, a nice guide by North Wild Kitchen on how the 17. mai day is celebrated can be read here: https://northwildkitchen.com/17-ways-to-celebrate-norways-constitution-day/. That will get us on track for a fine celebration.  

 

 
Desserts are a traditional highlight of Syttende Mai celebrations. Here are recipes, including helpful directions for success, for two of the most popular desserts - Bløtkake and Pavlova. Maybe coffee and bløtkake during the Festival Worship Service is your plan... then Pavlova in the evening.
