Ballard, a Seattle neighborhood, celebrates Norway's independence....from Denmark

Well I guess you have to have something to celebrate. Ballard is home to a large Norwegian population. The idea of Norwegian independence and celebrating it sounds a lot more dramatic when you don't know that the Danes, the evil, evil, Danes, were the group of people who Norway was subject to. I mean, it doesn't hold a candle to Finland being incorporated into the Russian Empire from 1809 to 1917.
