A Trip To Stoughton

Stoughton is one of two nearby Norwegian communities and more than a *punchline. It hosts the three-day Syttende Mai celebration and officially kicks off festival season. Although this year's weather was one of the gloomiest in memory, the staunch Nordic spirit persisted.


Today, everyone is Norwegian. I want a treat for this


A kind of Superman Thor vibe


I'd rather have fistfuls of lingonberry pies


Ah dinnae think this goes together, but Uff Da!


Wheee, I'm Norwegian, Week's Favorite


Does this remind anyone else of that scene from The Shining?


I love finding Stink-Eye pics

Kid Stinky-Eye

Mandatory stilt pirate. Hey der, aye


Just so I could say, "Norse Horse."


My subjects. Are we almost done?

  5. I hadn't heard that on Syttende Mai everyone is Norwegian. Like on St Patrick's Day everyone is Irish. I've been to Norway a couple of times but we didn't have all this celebration. Norway is a pretty country.

    1. Yeah, it's a pretty big deal in Stoughton, but since I'm already Norwegian, no biggie. I bet it's beautiful, would love to go.
