The Norwegian National Day

Happy National Day! People are marching in the streets, singing songs and eating sausages. Ice cream. Drinking Tequila. Barking inside cars. This is the Seventeenth of May! “Hurra!” they are screaming (which in fact means “kill”). We are, on the contrary, sitting inside trying not to hear the drumming and screaming. It is not possible to survive in town today or tonight. Crowdy. Staying inside is no kind of protest against the celebrations, it is simply a strategy to stay alive.
