17 May Norwegian National Day

In the 17th of May,Norwegian National Day. Norwegian are celebrating this day with parades and carnivals together with wearing their beautiful traditional clothes called Bunad. This is my 7 years of living in Norway. Almost every year I am going out in this day to take pictures and share the happiness with the Norwegians. I like pretty much their clothes and traditions. The Bunad has different shapes and forms based on the different communities in Norway. For example in Tr√łndelag province the colors are more into greenish. Noteworthy, Bunad is very expensive and normally they keep it at least for some years. I heard that some of them got the Bunad from their parents and then gave it to their childs.  See in larger version also the detail of photo :
