Norwegians are the most antisocial population on the planet according to statistical research. There are numerous reasons for this. We’ve been under other nations’ reign for as long as anyone can remember. Norway wasn’t Norway until 1814, but then we were suddenly under Sweden. Then we had the nazi occupation. No one seems to forget that one.
So, we don’t welcome strangers with open arms.
Still, the main reason for us being antisocial is the weather. Without a doubt. I mean, you don’t get too eager to go on visiting neighbours when people are freezing to death in your neighbourhood. This is just a couple of examples to give you the general idea of our relation to cold: «Norwegians and cold»
