In the very end of this post, you will find my secret word.. We are all suppose to tell you three things of our choice on this hop. I would just do 3 small fun facts about Norway I think.. I'm sure that it has been quite a read on this blog hop with all the people listed on the hop. 


Fun fact one: The Vikings of Norway

(and Scandinavia) are well-known, they had a reputation as fierce and fearless fighters. Vikings did not have helmets with horns (as shown in the popular comic strip Hägar the Horrible). In fact, it is not clear if Vikings used helmets at all. While tens of thousands of Viking weapons has been uncovered, only one (1) helmet from around the Viking period exist. The Viking helmet is a merely a legend. Although the word "viking" is now used about people from Scandinavia, thousands years ago in west-germanic languages it possibly referred to pirates, seaborn warriors or seamen of any origin. 

Fun fact two: Norwegain words adopted in English as well as other languages.

Norwegian and English are not only closely related, but a number of Norwegian or Old Norse words have been adopted in English as well as other languages, examples:
  • Ski - cleft piece of wood
  • Bag - flexible container, borrowed back from english into modern Norwegian
  • Slalom - (Slalåm i Norwegain) - a track (låm) on a slope (Sla) 
  • Club - from old Norse (a cudgel) 
  • Sky - from old Norse (meaning "cloud")
  • Flat - "flat/flatt" in modern Norwegain
  • are - er in modern Norwegain
  • they - de in modern Norwegain

Fun fact three: Norwegians love frozen pizza.

The Grandiosa frozen pizza is the unofficial Norwegian national dish. Each year Norwegians consume more than 20 million Grandiosa pizzas, in addition to all the other frozen pizza brands on the market.

So there you have it.. some fun facts about us Norwegians.. :) And now to my secret word... MATTERS

So since I'm the last one in this hop you should have collected all the words and email them to marketing[att]papercraftscandianvia.com. Thank you so much for stopping by here today! And thank you for all your hopping! :)
