The Thai-Nordic Association (TNA) hosted a successful event, The Social: National Day, on Friday, May 19th, to celebrate the National Days of the Nordic countries. The event was held at legendary The Landmark Bangkok, and was attended by over 50 Nordics and Nordic friends.

The event’s theme was “National Day,” and guests enjoyed a social game with prizes, free-flowing drinks, and food to the tunes of Nordic Eurovision.

The event was a great success, and guests enjoyed the opportunity to celebrate the cultures of the Nordic countries. They also appreciated the opportunity to meet other people interested in Nordic culture.

The Nordic National Days are celebrated to commemorate each country’s independence or establishment of constitutions. Norway celebrates its National Day on May 17th, Denmark on June 5th (Denmark is one of only a handful of countries that doesn’t have an official national day, but Constitution Day is sometimes considered the equivalent of such a day), Sweden on June 6th, Iceland on June 17th, and Finland on December 6th.

While some national days celebrate the independence from another Nordic country, TNA is happy to bring all the Nordics back together under friendlier terms. The Nordic National Days are a time for people to come together and celebrate their shared culture and heritage. They are also a time to learn more about the different countries and their unique traditions.

“It’s amazing to see such a great turnout again at The Social. A great mix of people, ‘young and younger,’ from different countries and professional backgrounds—this is what makes The Social unique,” said the happy TNA Chairman Kim Alexandersen.

TNA’s “The Social” events bring people together and facilitate meetings between people who may not have met otherwise. As such, the event team creates social games to stimulate new conversations. This time, attendees were given part of a Nordic flag at registration and were asked to find the other matching part. The successful pairs won an entry ticket to a lucky draw to win dining vouchers at the Landmark’s establishments and wine.

Thai-Nordic Association is a non-profit organization founded in 1920 that act as a union between Thai and Nordic people living in Thailand and organizes social, sports, and leisure activities. The organization hosts various events throughout the year, and “The Social” is a relaxed after-work event held four times per year.
