King's Day

Today is King's Day in the Netherlands, or 'Koningsdag' in Dutch, on which we celebrate the birthday of our King Willem-Alexander. He turned 50 years old today. 

TIt's a national holiday and the whole of the Netherlands colours orange, literally so here on Buienradar, a popular weather radar site. And even though we can't do without an umbrella today and with about 11°C it's rather chilly, but it's a festive day!

  4. Happy King's Day, Marleen. We have a public holiday here in South Africa as well today: Freedom Day. April and May have more holidays thank working days - almost!

  5. I'm glad that your kind is nice enough so that people would actually celebrate his birthday. In this country it would only be the hard right, neo-fascists, skinheads, neo-nazis, ignorant and crazy people who would celebrate the orange-headed monster's birthday.
