Norwegian Holidays and Observances - January

January 1 - New Years Day (Holiday & Flag Day)
January 21 - Princess Ingrid Alexandra's Day (Flag Day)


Born in 2004, Her Royal Highness Princess Ingrid Alexandra is the future of the Norwegian Monarchy. She is second in line to the throne, behind her father, Crown Prince Haakon.  Her mother is Crown Princess Mette-Marit.  Her Grandparents are King Harald V and Queen Sonja.

Princess Ingrid Alexandra is the first Norwegian girl born as heir to the throne.   The constitution of Norway was changed in 1990, allowing a female royal heir.  She is very interested and active in environmental issues.  Her hobbies include kickboxing, skiiing, and surfing.  In 2020, she won the Norwegian surfing championship for juniors.

2021-2023 Grand Lodge Officers

Our biennial convention took place in July, 2021 at the Kitsap Conference Center  on the beautiful Bremerton, Washington waterfront. It was hosted by our WA  lodges Thea Foss #45, Nina Grieg #40, and Prillar Guri #30. We explored our  culture and heritage through talks and hands-on workshops, and held our delegate  business meetings. Walking tours and excursions in the Bremerton area gave us the  opportunity to celebrate our sisterhood. 

2023_Logo-transparent.pngWe are excited that our 2023 convention will be held in Reno, Nevada, hosted by local lodges Sonja Henie #29 - Reno NV, Queen Maud #42 - Carson City NV, and  Elise Wærenskjold #48 - Roseville CA.
