It's Queenday!!!

Our former Queen, Juliana, celebrated her birthday on this day.
In honor of her and for some other reasons we kept Queensday on april 30.

Each year Queen Beatrix visits two towns to take part in the celebrations.

This year it's Makkum/Wunseradiel and Franeker in Friensland, the north of the country.

In case you want to enjoy the way we celebrate such a special day, you can visit some sites and enjoy the life broadcasts.

  1. Thanks for this post - it is sometimes easy to forget that the British Queen isn't the only one in the world. I don't actually know what "our" Queen does for her birthday - but I love the thought of your Queen visiting two towns and sharing her day with those who truly admire her. Sounds like it is so much more than just a lovely gesture :-)


Thank you for your comment.
