29 April 06 - 13:02 Queens Day
Today is Queens Day (Koninginnedag)!
The dutch are celibrating the Queen's official birthday every year on April 30, since that's a Sunday this year we celibrate it today, Saturday April 29.
It's one of the few national holidays we have. Bad luck this year though...it's weekend and we don't get a public holiday back for it :( :(
Celibrating it on April 30 is also a bit twisted since the current Queen Beatrix actually has her Birthday on January 31st?!?
She however stated that she wished to continue celebrating it publicly on April 30, as a mark of respect for her mother, Queen Juliana.
