Syttende Mai 2022

Our Syttende Mai celebration will be held in Erik & Barbara Moeller's backyard. Midnattsolen will provide, a close to a traditional meal of hot dogs, buns/lefse, and chips. For dessert, we will have cupcakes and ice cream. Please bring drinks and chairs for yourself.

Norwegians celebrate Syttende Mai by eating ice cream (is in Norwegian) and hot dogs (pølse in Norwegian) during the parades or shortly after. Later in the day, after the parades have finished, Norwegians tend to gather with other family members for smørbrød (open-faced sandwiches) served with milk, juice and carbonated water as well as coffee and tea. Several varieties of cakes are also served on Syttende Mai, including the classic bløtkake (a cousin to the very British Victoria sponge), Suksesskake (“success cake”), or Verdensbeste (“The Best Cake in the World”). More coffee is of course served to help wash it all down.”  Thanks For The Food - A Norwegian Food Blog
