Also the day after the 16th of May, which is one of the biggest partying days of the year here in Norway, and also the day with the highest attendance at the football games in the Norwegian football season.

This means that most young people between 15 and 26 are pretty tired on the national day. Students especially are prone to stay inside on 17th of May after a hard last night, pretending to be studying for their exams, but really just trying to eliminate the obligatory national day hangover. The parades that are going on outdoors don't really help, so staying in often works, and one may or may not wear a bunad whilst doing this.
