Almost every country has their graduation and celebration but the Norwegian russ celebration is different and special in every way.

Some of the buses have huge speakers either inside the bus or on the roof, so you can hear them and feel how the ground is shaking when a russ bus drives by your neighborhood. During the russ celebration the students are driving around in their buses and vans and partying all day and night long, and after the celebration the vehicles are sold to other students that will be russ so they can paint it over again in their own way for the next year. In other countries like Holland there are no cool buses, instead they have scary advertisements.
