Lots of toasting is part of any Norwegian party — here, Vidar’s youngest daughter Agnes gives a sweet toast to her papa. Although we probably only understood about every fifth word of each toast, we had a friend sitting next to us who did a lot of translating, and we laughed until our cheeks hurt. I think it’s great that Norwegians toast so much; it gives kids a chance to really get comfortable speaking in public (something I have a gut-terror fear of.)
