See what I mean? Maybe it's some kind of orange miracle? Let's see what happens but I'm more than ready for a few bursts of sunshine and picnic weather to last longer than one day.
The last time I celebrated this crazy orange holiday it was ridiculously fun, chaotic and frankly, exhausting towards the end, so I think we'll take things a bit easier this year...
Celebrating Queens Day 2010 in style. (Yes, that means wearing fancy bathrobes and lots of orange)
This year we'll get things started on Queen's Night which happens to be a friend's birthday celebration (Happy birthday, Liz!) Then we'll try for an rise early the following morning to check out goods at the famous vrijmarkt (my Dutchman is always convinced he'll find loads of antique treasures, ha!) To clear up any confusion, you can read a humorous account of the festivities over at the blog Invading Holland.
Check back here next week to see how we survived the wild sea of orange. In the meanwhile, take a few minutes this clip from the Dutch series Nederland van Boven (Netherlands from Above). We've been watching this interesting series together after dinner, adding Dutch subtitles helps improve my vocabulary!
Sure, it's in Dutch but you'll get the essence of how wild this holiday celebration can get!
Have a great weekend and for those of you in Holland enjoy your Koninginnedag!
