The countdown to Queen’s day is in full swing. Tomorrow is a very special day in the Netherlands. For the past 33 years we celebrated our queen’s birthday annually on April 30, as the national holiday called Queen’s Day. But earlier this year our queen announced that this year’s holiday will also mark the day of her abdication. Her son Prince Willem-Alexander will succeed her, and as of next year we will have an annual King’s Day on April 27th, his birthday. So this year’s queen’s day is also the last. Our national colour is orange, something you can’t ignore because everyone dresses in orange, eats orange food, and decorates their homes and shops in orange.
So let’s talk orange and get some last-minute orange wanna-haves for this historical day.
