Queen’s Day

Queen’s day, Queensday or Koninginnedag (as we call it), is a national holiday in the Netherlands. On this day we celebrate the birthday of the Queen of the Netherlands. Her birthday is actually on the 31st of January, but because the weather is generally very bad then, we decided to celebrate it on her mum’s birthday (if that makes any sense). Queen’s Day is also a typical occasion for the world-famous Orange Craze. On this day everything is and everybody is ready to party…
