Happy King's day

Saturday,  04/26/14  09:49 AM

Greetings all!  I hope you have an amazing Koningsdag, or "King's Day", the annual celebration of the Dutch monarch.  It happens on April 27th every year except when that is a Sunday, and so ... it's today!

You may remember that last year we all celebrated Queen's Day, and yes ... Queen Beatrix abdicated, and her son Willem took the throne.  Would you like to learn a Dutch word?  Oranjegekte (oh-ran-yuh-kek-teh) means "orange craziness, and that's what's going on right now...

So ... wear orange
And you, too can celebrate like these people in Amsterdam...
