Koningsdag

In the Netherlands we have this holiday on 27 april and we call it koningsdag (kingsday). On that day we celebrate the royal family with some tradtions.

This is our royal family

From left to right it is: our king Willem Alexander, our queen Maxima and their kids, Ariane, Amalia and Alexia.

Here are some traditions,

We all dress in orange, because it is our national color and eat a lot of orange colored food.

We have flea markets all across the country.

At those flea marktets we usually also have some traditional games such as koekhappen. The goal of that game is to eat a cookie of a wire above you without using you hands

There is also this game, it is called spijkerbroekhangen. (jean hanging). The goal is to hang as long as possible to the trousers. Sometimes we even place a little pool of dirt underneath the jeans.

I hope you liked this post and as we say in the Netherlands, tot ziens!

Here is a bonus picture of our king throwing a toilet bowl.
