Happy Norwegian Father's Day

Today is Father's Day

People around the world express their warm feelings towards their fathers

Norwegians are often more subtle in their praise and careful in their expression of feelings


While in many countries we learn to express feelings openly from a young age


Norwegians often imply it


Rather than saying it out straight


There is not much facial expression


Not much body movement


Speech is indirect


If you are used to a culture


Which uses a lot facial expression


Body movement

Clear speech


When expressing feelings in a relationship

Be aware that Norwegians means the same thing

They just express it differently
