  3. […] A modern addition to this celebration is the Russ Bus. Students get together and work hard for a year or two to save up money and pool it together into buying, decorating and equipping a bus for the Russ season: The bus is literally a rolling party, with loud music, lights and Russ only allowed inside.

    A very cool idea! Takes the social pressure off for kids that don’t feel comfortable with proms or don’t get asked, as had to happen in my day!

    I was a Russ in 1989 as foreign exchange student to Skeisvang in Haugesund. Every year on May 17th I still pull out my Norwegian flag with pride!

    Russ is rather genuinely exciting tradition & 100% fun guaranteed for young adults than our boring tradition of promenade back home I guess!

    have a peaceful week ahead renny!
