This shirt, as cheesy as it is, has so many memories attached to it. Of course the most obvious would be that I love Norway. No I've never actually been to Norway, but I frequently visited their Epcot pavilion on my days off. Mmmm, I miss Norwegian School Bread so much! (my friend Kait and I would have a date day to get these yummy desserts once a week).
Anyways, having spent so much time visiting the pavilion and making friends with the Maelstrom cast members, I can honestly say, Norwegians are high on my list of favourite people in the world. Sure they can party hard, but they are also outgoing, funny and the most loyal friends I could ever have. Many of my favourite Disney memories are a result of hanging out with Norwegians. So that is reason #1 why this shirt means so much to me. (P.S. Happy belated Constitution Day to all my Norwegian friends!)
The second reason of course is this shirt is from Epcot which was my home away from home for over a year. Not a day goes by where I don't miss it. "Post-Disney Depression" as we like to call it, is such a hard thing to overcome when you and your friends are forced to go back to your home countries.
At Disney it was easy to call your friend up and say you'd be over in 10 minutes, however now it's like "Hey! Maybe if I can save up a ton of money I can visit you for a week before I have to go back across the ocean". It's a sad but all to familiar reality. Thankfully Epcot will always be the home that took us all in and made us a family. Without my international friends, I wouldn't be who I am today and I'm truly grateful for that. ♥
Gosh, I'm getting teary eyed just thinking about all the amazing friends I made during my program and how insanely bad I miss them, but I digress. The last reason why I love this shirt is because of how silly it is. I mean, hello, who walks around with a I 'viking helmet' Norge shirt in the everyday world?
Disney World is different though. It has a strange sort of magic where a grown man can walk around in Disney clothing and you don't think anything of it. But once you leave the parks, it becomes socially awkward to be wearing Disney apparel if you're over the age of 9. Nevertheless, this shirt makes me happy so I'm going to continue wearing it. I especially love pairing it with red and yellow because I'm finding myself more and more attracted to this colour combination.
