Please join us at Norway House for Lakselaget Day! A family friendly event, admission to the Galleri is gratis for Lakselaget members and their families. Laurann Gilbertson from Vesterheim will speak on the history of the Norwegian Sweater---a perfect topic in combination with the Oleana exhibit!
Brief program and refreshments will be served 10am - 12pm. It is also International Waffle Day; Stine Aasland will be serving Nordic Waffles!
See the "History of Waffles" display created by NORWAY ART (www.norwayartonline.com)! It features a 17th Century European painting of the Annunciation. In Scandinavia, March 25 is "Waffle Day" and it's celebrated on the same day as the religious observance of "Annunciation Day".
The popular modern custom has its roots in centuries old religious observance.
The NORWAY ART display will include some intriguing facts and folklore about the history of waffles and an opportunity to see a beautiful art image of the Annunciation of Mary.
