In celebration of King William-Alexander’s birthday, King of The Netherlands, the country will enjoy a day of celebrating on April 26th, 2014. This will be our first King’s Day or Koningsdag after his inauguration last year. His birthday is actually on the 27th but that falls this year on a Sunday, so the country’s day of jubilee will take place the day before.
People throughout the country will be dressed in orange, the color of the royal family and some places can get a tad crazy.
But here at our little corner of The Netherlands our Happy Hippos have come out to celebrate.
Neighbors and people passing by on bike and by car are honking and waving a hearty hello and wishes for a Happy Koningsdag.
So from our home to yours... Happy Koningsdag!
