Happy birthday Sweden

today is a great day for the monarchy of Sweden. King Carl Gustaf the great celebrates his 65th birthday and everybody is celebrating with him.
Also the king of Austria is proud to wish king Carl all the best for his future live. He says: "I'm so happy that it's your birtday becasue it reminds me how many years I'm younger than you."

And now please stand up for the national anthem of Sweden:

Du gamla, Du fria, Du fjällhöga nord
Du tysta, Du glädjerika sköna!
Jag hälsar Dig, vänaste land uppå jord,
Din sol, Din himmel, Dina ängder gröna.

Du tronar på minnen från fornstora dar,
då ärat Ditt namn flög över jorden.
Jag vet att Du är och Du blir vad du var.
Ja, jag vill leva jag vill dö i Norden.

I didn't think that Norwegians could be so jealous. The day will come when it's your king's birthday!
