|Beatrix a little less orange|
|Queen Beatrix from Orange!|
Now Queen Beatrix van Oranje-Nassau used to be married to Prince Claus, but he passed away. Our Crown Prince is Prince Willem-Alexander van Oranje-Nassau
Well this is NOT a holiday for chocolate, but just a very fun day to be in the Netherlands, and to taste a little ''orange'' culture!
Why orange you ask? Have you ever seen Dutch people in sports? Or at anything nationalistic for Holland?
If you said yes, you know they are all ORANGE! If you said no, Ive got some pictures for you!
|World Cup 2010 (the Bavaria Babes who were arrested for sneak-marketing of a diffrent beer-brand (Bavaria) then the official sponsor (Heineken)|
|Queensday crowd (they are orange if you did not notice)|
|The Orange Legion (the people) never lets the Lion (Holland) stand alone!|
|The picture explains itself|
Well the answer to ALL of Hollands nationalistic events are covered in orange is because of...
Our Royal Family!
Their last name is ''van Oranje-Nassau'' (translates to ''from Orange-Nassau''). The Royal Family is so very dutch, that dutch people don't even notice it anymore, that there aren't a lot of europe countries with a royal family (France is very proud they killed every last one). On the other hand, you might notice that the United Kingdom's Royal Family recently had a wedding...
So I hope to educate the people of blogger, the people roaming the internets, that Holland DOES have a Royal Family, and their last name!
So maybe if you ever wanted to go to Holland, plan your trip for next year April 30st, and taste the REAL Dutch culture (and not that windmill stuff)
The next time you see a crowd of crazy orange people, you can almost certainly say: They are from Holland!
|Very Dutch: Orange + Tulips!|
