Queens Day

Today is Queens Day (Koninginnedag)!

The dutch are celibrating the Queen's official birthday every year on April 30, since that's a Sunday this year we celibrate it today, Saturday April 29.

It's one of the few national holidays we have. Bad luck this year though…it's weekend and we don't get a public holiday back for it 🙁 🙁

Celibrating it on April 30 is also a bit twisted since the current Queen Beatrix actually has her Birthday on January 31st?!?

She however stated that she wished to continue celebrating it publicly on April 30, as a mark of respect for her mother, Queen Juliana.
