EnglishDo you ever wonder what the Norwegians do for Easter?

  • They “all” go up to the mountains skiing, some in just a bathing suit.
  • They eat Easter lamb and yummy Easter marzipan.
  • If they are lucky they can see the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis).
  • They read spooky crime novels and solve Easter quizzes. 
  • They sit in the sun getting a really dark tan and wear a white high neck sweater when they get back in the city, and brag about their winter cabin.

Lurer du på hva Nordmenn gjør i Påsken?

  • Alle reiser på fjellet for å stå på ski, noen bare i en badedrakt.
  • De spiser Påske Lam og god Påske marsipan.
  • Hvis de er heldige så får de se Nordlyset.
  • De leser krim bøker og løser Påskenøtter.
  • De soler seg hele påsken og har på seg en hvit høyhalset genser når de reiser tilbake til byen, hvor de skryter av hytta si.
