King's Day

Just a short note to wish all my Dutch friends a Happy King's Day. If you don't know, Kings Day (Koningsdag), is a national holiday in the Kingdom of The Netherlands and is an opportunity for the monarch to honour citizens for their service to The Netherlands. 

It is seen as a time for people to go out and party as evidenced by the picture below. It's the first King's Day that I haven't been in The Netherlands for ten years! I am sure that my friends over their will have a Heineken for me!
