Happy Koningsdag!

Monday,  04/27/20  01:04 AM

Hi all –

April 27 is the day on which Dutch people celebrate the birthday of their King.   Everyone wears orange (the Dutch royal family are the house of Orange), drinks beer, and generally has a good time.


On a typical King’s Day Dutch cities are filled with people celebrating; it will be a bit different this year (although likely similar amounts of beer will be consumed).   Would you like to learn a Dutch word?   Oranjegekte (oh-ran-yuh-kek-teh) means “orange craziness”.   Please feel free to Google it to see what happens when Dutch people get excited, could be a football match, cycling, F1 racing, or just the King’s birthday.

Cheers, happy Koningsdag, and stay safe
