Syttende Mai Arthur Anderson Art artnscience-(at)-yahoo.com
They do wear unusual hats. I don't know if they are little square ones. The teenagers wear a little hat like a greek fisherman's hat that has some tassles. They put a knot in the tassle for each sunrise - sunset cycle they remain awake. This starts on 17 May and proceeds until midsummer for some kids.
Here is a syttende mai link from my ancestral town, Stavanger Norway.
