Woho, senior portrait. I look like a fool…….
Explaining the red hat, from wikipedia:
“The russefeiring (russ celebration) is the traditional Norwegian videregående skole (equivalent to high school) graduation ceremony. Participants in this ceremony are known as russ. The russefeiring traditionally starts on the 1st of May and ends on the 17th of May, the Norwegian national day. Participants wear coloured overalls, *(the hat is a part of it) drive matching cars, vans, or buses, and celebrate almost continually during this period. Promiscuous sex, drunkenness and public disturbance on a mass scale has been the most prominent impact of the celebration in recent decades.
*There are several different types of russ differing in the colour of the caps and traditional uniforms.
