New Year’s Resolutions in Norwegian Posted by Bjørn A. Bojesen on Dec 31, 2012 in Culture, Holidays
As 2012 is slipping away, it’s time to set the record straight for 2013! 🙂 Many people are making nyttårsforsett (or nyårsforsett, the singular and the plural are the same), or New Year’s resolutions, about things to improve or achieve during the upcoming year. I asked some family members and friends about their nyttårsforsett [NIT-ores-fore-set]:
- å leve sunt (to live healthy)
- å begynne å trene (to start training)
- å snakke pent til kona (to talk nice to the wife)
- å lese mer (to read more)
- å starte et nytt og bedre liv (to start a new and better life)
- å rydde (to tidy up)
- å bestige et fjell (to climb a mountain)
- å bruke mer tid på å være sosial på Facebook (to spend more time being social on Facebook)
- å lese færre nettaviser (to read fewer online newspapers)
- å bygge en garasje (to build a garage)
- å slutte å røyke (to quit smoking)
- å spise mer is (to eat more ice-cream)
- å dyrke mer sport (to do more sport)
- å skrive en sang (to write a song)
What are your resolutions for 2013?

Nyttårsforsettet mitt er å lære meg mer ungarsk og å bruke norsken min oftere, om det betyr at jeg leser mer eller at jeg snakker med flere nordmenn.
