100-Year-Old Mystery Package Finally Opened in Norway

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

One hundred years ago a man delivered a sealed package to the mayor of a small  Norway town. Written on it, the words: “May be opened in 2012.”

That day came on Friday August 24, 2012, 100 years after it was delivered to Johan Nygaard, the first mayor of the Otta, Norway.

The package was securely kept at the Gudbrandsdal museum in Norway where for years many speculated on what might be inside. Stocks in oil? Historical documents? Titanic’s Blue Star Diamond?


Inside, the contents included documents and decorative banners (whatever that means), according to Mashable. Shortly after it was opened, officials took the contents out of the limelight to organize them. A list of the items is expected to be released later Friday afternoon. Refresh this page for updates.

    Remember though, to choose one that suits you and not your partner
    or you’ll end up squinting against the sun’s ray again. What they aren’t aware is while
    it’s not always fun overlook some, the only way to defeat it can be
    to laugh with the situation and explore different ways to be, like awaiting
    a restock, which happens usually today save which
    are more exclusive of releases. I think that the most romantic thing that
    anyone has ever done for me was when a particular someone left a CD, that was special to both of us, with a single red rose on my doorstep.
