  1. Because tomorrow is Queensday! Every dutch person wears orange clothes and takes to the streets and canals for the biggest celebration of the year, the birthday of our queen! The drinking begins tonight!!!

    Some of my friends are going to be there but sadly not me. I spent three months in Holland last year but just missed the big party. Enjoy! :cool:
     
  8. Oh man, I was there for Koninginnedag when I was 16 (10 years ago). WHAT A PARTY!

    All I can say is, I love being Dutch!

    The Dutch seem like generally awesome people, and what a party that looks like!

    Sounds like fun, with the exception of having to wear orange.







    Orange tries too hard to be a fun color.

    whoa...

    America never has good parties. At least on the national level.

    one could count 420, but that's only celebrated by a minority of the population.

    I'm racking my brains trying to turn this into a phalex photoshop. Just can't seem to shake it.
     
  17. Hi.

    Have fun.

    Orange? I can think of one particular religious group being quite astonished as they suddenly "blend in" ;).

    As a sidenote, in Finland waterways/lakes and booze seldom go well together. Stay afloat.

    Regards

    You good sir, clearly do not get out enough. Americans need no reason to party. It just happens naturally. :D

    Our parties are ****ing boring compared to some of the ones in other countries. Here, it has to be government approved, work approved, and on a three day weekend before anybody takes notice. Any other country, it's a saints birthday, and the whole country takes the day off.
