Happy Norwegian Father's Day

Source: "The Social Guidebook to Norway"

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

In their own subtle and indirect way
