In the Netherlands, every year there is a day (30 April to be precise) to celebrate and honor the Dutch Queen Beatrix. Though it does not relate directly to the kingdoms birthday, the tradition has been around for many years now since the predecessor Juliana. On the night of the 29, it is probably where one can experience the most parties and booze! A great way for many to rejoice and let loose! On the following day, many festivals take place within main cities where people sale own merchandise at stands second hand for great deals! Furthermore, if lucky, one can spot the royal family cruising by in their fairytale carriage! The typical Dutch color is orange (oranje) and ties into fashion in many ways when people dress up for these festivities! Below I posted some pictures of myself and friends in awe of the glorious event!
